Autumn at Cades Cove

An autumn scene from Cades Cove in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park.
Photo courtesy of Ryan D. West.

Today's picture features a beautiful autumn scene from one of America's most popular vacation spots, and here is photographer Ryan D. West to tell us about it:
    "The Great Smokey Mountains is one of the most visited National
    Parks in the United States where you can see elk, deer, black bear,
    and occasionally a coyote or two - as well as majestic buildings that
    pre-date indoor plumbing. This is a picture that contains a few
    structures that are around 200 years old and built by using simple
    hand tools and still holding strong. They reflect what the settlers
    lived in as they started to move westward. This photo was taken
    in Cades Cove in The Great Smokey Mountains on October 26, 2008
    at approximately 3:00pm."

      My wife and I visited Cades Cove back in the 1960's, and I remember seeing this very spot. Thanks for bringing back a wonderful memory.
