Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountain NP, TN

Cades Cove is a beautiful valley and a popular destination for wildlife viewing at the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We didn’t get much luck during our visit — except for a few cows and horses, the only wildlife we kind of see is a running deer in the woods. But Cades Cove by itself, with the endless mountains and grasslands and a couple of cabins along the way, is already pretty fabulous, although late summer is probably not the best timing for visitors yet. Imaging how gorgeous it would be in autumn, ¬†with trees and shrubs being colored in different ways and interleaving with each other!
