Li'l Visit To My Great Smoky Mountains

We went on a day trip in the Smokies last week and visited a few places we don't see often.
We actually wanted to show off Clingman's Dome to one of my sisters, but the road was closed so we went on toward the North Carolina side of the Smokies.
This pool of water flows icy cold from Mingus Creek. In 1872 part of it was routed......through a wooden flume to power the newly built Mingus Mill. I was enthralled by the flume, such crafty work!I won't tell you everything about it because it's an interesting place to see for yourself when your visiting the Great Smoky Mountains.
Just a peek inside the mill at the flour bolter.A few of you have mentioned that you'd like to see more pictures of our mountains, and I'm pleased as punch to comply. :)
There's a different view from every angle of the lens.One of my favorites from our trip. (Click for a bigger pic, y'all.)
