White-tailed Deers / Cades Cove / Great Smoky Mountains National Park

White-tailed Deers in Cades Cove of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Cades Cove is a broad, verdant valley surrounded by mountains and is one of the most popular destinations in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It offers some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing in the park. Large numbers of white-tailed deer are frequently seen, and sightings of black bear, coyote, ground hog, turkey, raccoon, skunk, and other animals are also possible. All of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is a haven for white tailed deer, but there is no better place to view deer than Cades Cove. Though timid, the deer have learned to tolerate motorist stopping along the Cades Cove loop to watch them browse. I photographed these two in the late evening with the last few rays of golden sunlight.
