Cades Cove

Cades Cove is the most popular spot for visitors to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was nothing like I expected. Where I come from in the Mid West, a cove is a water feature; i.e. a protected or sheltered inlet of a waterway.

But, according to Webster’s Dictionary, a cove is also “a level area sheltered by hills or mountains”. Bingo, that’s what I found in Cades Cove; i.e. vast meadows surrounded by lush woodlands on the hillsides of the Appalachians.

It was just dad gum beautiful!

  1. Enjoy Larry! We’ve been to the Smoky Mountains a couple times for family reunions. Cades Cove is beautiful and you have captured it well! Have a terrific trip and I look forward to seeing what you capture on “film” and reading your insights.
