Cades Cove is an isolated valley located in the Tennessee section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, USA. The valley was home to numerous settlers before the formation of the national park. Today Cades Cove, the single most popular destination for visitors to the park, attracts more than two million visitors a year because of its well preserved homesteads, scenic mountain views, and abundant display of wildlife. The Cades Cove Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

I have been fortunate to be able to visit Cades Cove many times, while in the Smoky mountains. With the most visit I was able to check off a bucket list item and I biked around the 11 mile loop. I have gone through many of the historic buildings that families used and lived in at one time. I also even saw a family of bears one of the times that I went around the loop, sadly at that time I was unable to get the photo.

Hope everyone enjoys the pictures.
