Cable Mill area in Cades Cove

The Cable Mill area is the largest home place in Cades Cove. The corn meal is here, which I showed with the Copperheads photos, and am not showing with this post.I have always liked this barn, it is real hard to capture a photograph of it without people. (This area is the most crowded on the loop road in Cades Cove due to the restroom facilities, and there is quite a bit here to see.)
They still demonstrate the Sorghum mill here in the fall, but I have never been there when they were using it.
Just another structure in the area.

These are the last of the Labor Day trip to Cades Cove. I think this is a record for me. I have gone through all the photos, they are posted and filed away for later. Now I need to start going back to June's St Pete trip (going again in October) and the July 4th Perry's Water Lilies trip. I just decided to tackle Cades Cove immediately. Hope everybody has enjoyed this trip through this wonderful cove, which is a very small portion of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Maybe it will inspire a trip in this direction. Remember the Smokeys (as us locals call it) is the only national park with no entrance fee, and it is the most visited park.

I'd like to get down there this fall. All your pictures there are great!

Leedra, I remember when I visited this area with my husband a few years ago. And I remember not being able to get any photos without people in them around this area. But it sure was a beautiful spot -- a beautiful meadow amongst the forest. I was also so impressed about the GSMNP not collecting an entrance fee. No wonder it is so well visited. A note to Jen -- be sure to go when the leaves are about to change. That's when my husband and I visited and it was so beautiful with the various colors of fall.
