Wonder what they were finding? Thanks again Betsy for taking me back to see again the place I love. No one bothered us, just waved. I lost her later that yr. Was so sad. She had never seen the Cove before. I'm glad I could show her this lovely place. Great post, Betsy! The Butterfly is a Red-Spotted Purple. I see these on the driveway, porch, etc. Both cabins are just wonderful Thanks for the inside shots!
And the personal info. It's amazing when you post pics of Cades Cove. It's been over 15 years ago since I have been there but I've compared some of my old photos to the ones you post and I am so glad they've preserved these old structures just as they used to be.
That is a beautiful place for sure. Blessings to you Marilyn.
My momma raised me better than that!!! Robert has no right to keep that money hostage. Lu is a very sympathetic heroine who finds that good intentions are often simply not enough. The number of families has gradually dwindled so that none remain today. Some items have also been added within the basement.
I bet Aunt Tildy was a happer camper in her new dream home. I love those old places and you just bring them to life Betsy.
Thanks for sharing. I grew up in Roanoke County but two counties south, Franklin County, was and maybe still is one of the largest producers of "moonshine" in the south!! I've never tried the stuff! I agree with the senselessness of graffiti. Beautiful butterfly but I don't know the name. Best, Bonnie. I think I could just live in that cabin - it's just beautiful.
Of course I'd have to have a bathroom, and electricity, and washer and dryer and Aunt Tildy had quite a story including a moonshine running son! It's such a shame about the graffiti. Dont you just wish you could travel back in time - when folk lived in these cabins? Lovely post and pics Betsy. I loved the story about Aunt Tildy. She found a great man the second time around who provided for her with grace and style. I love those old cabins in the smoky mountains! Enjoyed your visit to Cades Cove -I went there once years ago - did you see the school house in the same area - amazing!! Beautiful butterflies, lucky you spotted them, Betsy..

Well shame on the bum of a first husband but lucky Tildy. Henry was a keeper.
clublavoute.ca/gadyf-sitios-para.php Nice story and an object lesson on how families took care of each other. What a great story I just love these cabins. Looks like they just drug one up to sit behind the other.
You got some great shots of the cabin, Betsy. We look at those cabins today and think how neat it would be to have one like that, but we don't think about the hard life of those who called them home.
Thanks for taking me back to this great place once again. Many years ago I was here, but had forgotten so much. You and Aunt Tildy have something in common with having great luck on the second time. I do love Cades Cove so I enjoy your visits. You took pictures, when I went, I didn't. Great post!
There is something about this post that just screams summer and I love it so much! I grew up in Georgia and miss the east coast. I especially loved catching fireflies in the summer! I would love to visit here someday! Such a detailed write up of a beautiful place. Love your pics too. Great hiking tips.
We have only done Cades Cove and Laurel Falls. There really is so much to do in the Smoky Mountains with kids! This place is amazing! I wonder if you have met any of those mysterious animals biking through cades cove? Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email. Follow Me! May 28, 11 Comments. Here are my 10 favorite things to do in the Great Smoky Mountains with kids: 1. A road closed in winter takes you within a half mile of the tower along the Appalachian Trail. Then a steep half-mile ramp takes you up to the highest spot in Tennessee. The ramp is steep but doable for strollers.
Laurel Falls is an easy, paved trail, and much easier to take a stroller on. The roundtrip distance to the waterfall is 2. It takes about 2 hours to hike to the waterfall and back. For a quieter lookout point, head for Look Rock on the west edge of the park off of Foothills Parkway closed in winter.
Take the one- to two-mile round- trip hike depending on where you park to the Look Rock Tower for degree views of the mountains.
