Sky Watch/overlooking Cataloochee Cove - GSMNP

You can see why the Smokies are called the 'Blue Ridges' from these photos.



I took these as we left Cataloochee Cove. I posted some last week on Sky Watch Friday from around the same time, the other end of the same parking lot. This is the last of the Cataloochee Cove photos. I hope you have enjoyed the Cades Cove series and the Cataloochee Cove series over the last couple of weeks.

Please visit Sky Watch to see sky photos from all over the world.
