This idyllic setting is John Oliver’s cabin in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee. Following the one-way eleven-mile loop around Cades Cove in Great Smoky Mountains NP, one of the first points of interest is John Oliver’s cabin.
The log cabin was built without nails or wooden pegs. Notched corners in the ends of each log are held in place by gravity. It is solid as a rock, looked like it could withstand a tornado.
The site is a short walk from the main road. Walking through the woods brings you to the front door. Walking through the meadow surrounded by the Great Smokies brings you to the massive fireplace. Either way is a pleasant walk.
Thought for the Day: Walking is man’s best medicine.
