I enjoy living in Georgia! Well except for the unbearable heat we've had this summer, but that has happened all over the country so I guess I can say....I enjoy living in Georgia! We are close to the Atlantic Ocean, The Gulf of Mexico and the glorious Mountains! A day's drive can get you to so many wonderful and different places.
Not long ago Mr ALC and I took a trip north to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! Of course we had our camera's and I want to share some of my photos with you. These photos were taken in Cades Cove in Tennessee.
This area was settled in the 1800's by farmers and the hardships they endured were incredible but they hung on and made themselves a community in this breathtaking place.
This church was so pretty against the blue sky
We went inside
Plain wooden benches
I loved the light pouring into this dark room
Old Grave Markers
This man fought in the Revolutionary war
Newer headstone 1927
Most of these headstones are so old the engraving has worn away
Life was hard but this community grew
There were so many farms and buildings I didn't get photos of them all. We will be going again to Cades Cove, maybe in the fall.
Near Gatlinburg, TN is Running Fork Motor Nature Trail
It was closed due to renovations but we were able to visit the first farmhouse on the trail
This is a 'saddlebag log home'
Loved this back porch
Just a short way from the cabin
Was the Barn
I hope you will have a chance to visit this incredible and huge national state park sometime. We are lucky to live so close!
Wishing you wonderful memories of your summer
