Streams in Cataloochee Cove - GSMNP

I have now attached this to Watery Wednesday. Please visit Watery Wednesday to check out this new one. It was not working earlier today, but appears to be ok now.

These are just various streams throughout Cataloochee Cove. This cove is just as nice as Cades Cove, in it's own way. Can't believe I had never visited it before.

Won't these be beautiful when the leaves begin to turn?

And Linley will be coming home just in time to see the fall colors. Happy Birthday, Linley! We sure are glad you survived Ike, and got the t-shirt as you said. I know the mountains and change of colors is what you missed the most, so thought these photos were as good as any to wish you a Happy Birthday!!

Thank you Leedra. The pictures look great and yes I do miss autumn. It is my favorite time of year. We will have to come visit after I return to see all of the beautiful foliage.

That looks peaceful. Someone has started a Watery Wednesday, check out my blog to participate this would have been really nice for it.

Leedra: Love the little streams, it reminds me of the PA mountain views.

Wow, these are beautiful! Looks like my kind of place. Sorry about the Watery Wednesday thing. Looks like the Mr. Linky site is down which affects the list showing up. Hopefully's it's just temporary. Please check back later. I hate that this happened with my first post of it. :-( I hope you'll check back.

Beautiful country it is! I remember the first time I visited...took a back road and found the streams going across the road vs below it. Way cool :-) Thanks for stopping by...

How beautiful and it looks so peaceful. I would love to sit by that river, watch nature all around me. Great series of photos. Lovely start to Watery Wednesday.

Rivers and streams are beautiful places to walk along. How lovely it must be to have access to such a place as this. Nice photos.

I love little streams. Foresty settings. Maybe a trout or two hiding next to a rock. I keep looking. Don't see any though. Are they there?

Troutbirder - I am going to probably stick my foot in my mouth here. Are trout what they stand in the bed of the streams and 'fly fish' for? If so, there probably were. All over the smokies you see people fishing that way, although I did not that day. The road is real rough going into Cataloochee Cove (mentioned in an earlier post) so you really gotta want to go there. Alot easier places in the smokies to go fishing.

See an earlier post of Palmer House mentions tourist. There they were charging 50 cents to fish in the early 1900s.

Thanks Leedra. Perfect. According to author Rober Traver your trout fisherman are often into "solitude without loneliness" so a place hard to get to is ideal!
