Happy Earth Day, to celebrate it, we burned a petroleum product for 406 miles. I know we are going to environmental hell. The deer woke us at 7 am when a small group grazed through our campsite. It was a cold one today and it made us eager to get on the road to warmer weather in Tennessee! After a stop at the Sevierelle Chamber of Commerce to use the WiFi and to get some Smoky information, we arrived at Elkmont Campground in the park around 6:00. We chose our site and set up. Then had a relaxed evening of supper, cold dish washing and some reading. Tomorrow we get some hiking in.
