From Gatlinburg,TN, start into the national park. When you come to the Sugarlands Visitor Center, there are signs directing you to Cades Cove.
One of my favorite places in the world to photograph, Cades Cove is a open air museum, a little valley nestled in the mountains of The Smokies. As the seasons change, the landscape changes, and the life cycle of the animals change. www.smokymountainphotos.com
