Cades Cove is a beautiful valley in the Great Smokies surrounded by mountains and offers some of the best viewing of wildlife in the park. Early in the morning fog can settle in the valley and make for beautiful photo ops. This meandering road pulled me in and gave me one of my favorites from our trip. Cades Cove is amazing well worth the trip. Whitetail deer, black bear, coyotes, turkeys, and other wildlife are frequently seen throughout the park.
