Photos of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

I visited recently Cades Cove and Elkmont Historic district of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. I was a press trip and could not photographe during the best hours of the day, but I managed to get some interesting photos.

Elkmont Historic district

Part of the « Appalachian Club, » near the former logging town of Elkmont, the Elkmont Historic District is not well known, even by the locals.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a United States National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site that straddles the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are a division of the larger Appalachian Mountain chain.

Cades Cove

Cades Cove is a broad valley surrounded by mountains. As you drive the 11-mile loop, you can stop and explore various historical buildings: churches, a working grist mill, barns and old cabins inhabited by the settlers before the creation of the park.
