Found mama bear at Cades cove with 3 little cubs. Sat and watched the cubs climb trees and mama bear forge for food for about an hour early in the morning with only about one or two other people showing up and moving along. I was close by my car the entire time but there was one instance mama bear was only ~30-50 ft away. . . . . . . #solideogloria #smokies #theblueridgers #blueridgemoments #appalachian_explorers #adventureappalachia #instagramtennessee #eastcoastcreatives #southerstatesco #greatsmokymountains #tennessee #thenortheastcollective #madeintn #neverstopexploring #onlytennisee #exploringtheglobe #goneoutdoors #visualsoflife #packandgo #ourplanetdaily #earthpics #exploretocreate #peoplescreative #nakedplanet #findyourselfoutside #optoutside #thevisualscollective #roamtheplanet #thecreatorclass #homesweettn

Although this was a sunset, I’m reminded of Chris Tomlin’s song where the words are “Morning, I see You in the sunrise every morning. It’s like a picture that you painted for me. Love letter in the sky.” God’s glory is displayed in all of his creation and His love is great and awesome! . . . . . . #solideogloria #northcarolina #theblueridgers #visitnc #blueridgemoments #appalachian_explorers #adventureappalachia #ncoutdoors #artofvisuals #myblueridge #landscapecapture #nc_outdoorinc #eastcoastcreatives #neverstopexploring #exploringtheglobe #goneoutdoors #visualsoflife #packandgo #ourplanetdaily #earthpics #exploretocreate #lensbible #nakedplanet #findyourselfoutside #optoutside #thevisualscollective #roamtheplanet #thecreatorclass #getoutstayout #southernstatesco

One of the most beautiful scenes I’ve ever scene in my entire life. What made this view the most rewarding is that the hike up was on a 60° incline hill covered in snow/mud due to the sun melting it. My wife and I had no crampons on and many times we wanted to turn back, were slipping and falling in mud and snow sludge and were afraid of falling down such a steep mountain. We were encouraged by the perseverance of two other hikers that were just behind us struggling just as much as we were to power on up the mountain. A memory that will last a lifetime. . . . . . . . #alberta #splendidcanada #paradisecanada #explorecanada #travelalberta #canon_photos #canadiandestinations #choosemountains #cangeotravel #rei1440project #canadiancreatives #tourcanada #thegreatoutdoors #neverstopexploring #canoncanada #exploringtheglobe #goneoutdoors #visualsoflife #packandgo #ourplanetdaily #earthpics #exploretocreate #earthfocus #nakedplanet #findyourselfoutside #optoutside #thevisualscollective #roamtheplanet #thecreatorclass #getoutstayout
