Cades Cove & Upper Tremont Road

On Little River Road in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Little River in a quiet spot

Today I'm featuring some of the fencing on what we term the "Peaceful side of the Smokies."

Cantilever barn

On Upper Tremont Road in The Great Smoky Mountain National Park where many years ago, I saw my first Kingfisher along this river. Click to make it big, but be careful so you don't get wet.  The water is really cold this time of year.  ;)   See you soon, the Good Lord willin'.

  2. What a beautiful place! I especially like the first photo, but the scenery and fall colors in all of them are lovely! Very neat to see the old barn--it is almost see-through!

  4. We were just there last week! We hiked the Middle Prong trail at Tremont, up to Lynn Camp Prong Falls and a little beyond. Doug also hiked to Andrews Bald. I sat that one out. My legs and feet can't handle a steep rocky trail like that anymore. We did hike Little River trail up to Husky Branch Falls one day, though. I wonder if we might have passed each other somewhere along the way.

  5. Totally agree: the most glorious mountain range in the USA! Look at the yellow and brown foliage, we don't have those here in my place. Thanks for sharing, the scenery is so dreamy. :-)
    Have a great week!

  13. I have been through the Smokies a few times, but was always on a mission to get to the other side. Thanks for the photos. I adore a good split-rail fence :)

  14. My goodness. One shot is more beautiful than the next, but I think the third photo is the one that speaks to me most. Reminds me of my beloved North Carolina.
    Thanks for stopping by The Maple Hill Hop!

  19. You live in such a beautiful area. We've visited Civil War battlefields so of course have seen many split rail fences like this. There is something so beautiful about their simplicity.

  26. Country side is beautiful. I enjoyed the Video. A real bonus of a blog on good fences and the rapid water, woodland. My place like yours was called. Richie Falls. I think you could browse Internet to see it. It is in Lochlin area. Canada.

    I have Gods country also with the way your video is. We both are so blessed.

  34. Hello, my friend! How are you on this lovely December day? You have been in my thoughts so I decided to pop in for a visit :)

  37. Oh my gosh, so many memories! I've been to Cades Cove so many times with my family - first on family vacations with my parents and now with my own children. I used to dream that I would grow up and live there one day :) really beautiful photos.

  38. Just checking out your blog...
    Saw this one on Cades Cove, one of my favorite places to visit! We used to live near Chattanooga in Pikeville and loved Tennessee.
    Now we love in our own "Oliver's cabin" in Arkansas! It's 175 year old cabin with the logs still intact.. Amazing, but not as beautiful scenery as Tennessee. Thanks for posting!
