Looking Down on Cades Cove



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Cades Cove is one of the most popular parts of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. The cove is a valley dotted with homesteads, churches, fields and woods. It was turned into a living museum after the establishment of the park in the 1930s. This picture was taken from Rich Mountain road leading out to Cades Cove. If you look carefully you can see part of the loop road that takes visitors through the cove.

This is a beautiful shot, George. Now you need to go back and do the same things while the Cove is dressed in its fall glory. :)

What a peaceful scene. I also enjoyed viewing several of your most recent posts and I really enjoyed your fall colors in both the post and the banner.

I've been away getting new photos, but I'm back and hope to be by more often.

Thanks for keeping up the good work.
