Cades Cove (formerly Kade’s Cove) in the Smoky Mountains


It was an overcast, occasionally rainy and slightly cool day.  The goal was to take a few good photos, enjoy some “together” time and, for me, to listen to his treasure-trove of information on the Cove and its history.  Come along and enjoy the day with us…..



These cut logs were used as beehives–called Gum Stands.
