Perhaps I am a bear, or some hibernating animal underneath, for the instinct to be half asleep all winter is so strong in me.
--Anne Morrow Lindbergh (1906-2001)
pioneering American aviator, author

Don't know if you heard this about Roan Mountain, but they'll be doing a lot of repaving and other restorations work up there this summer -- the road from Carver's Gap to the Cloudland Parking Area will be closed for a year starting this spring. However, they will open the road from June 6 to July 7th this year so people can visit the Rhododendron Gardens. Click here to read the JC Press story.

Speaking of construction -- some of the most popular sites within the Great Smoky Mountain National Park will be closed at various times this year for renovations -- including Cades Cove and Clingman's Dome. If planning a trip, be sure to check out the park's website before you go.
