Despite my anticipation for a lovely fall in one of the most beautiful places to admire it...I can't help but look back to the beauty hikes in and around Cades Cove shared with me this past summer...
|In early spring there are banks of mountain laurel to admire. A bit later the rhododendrons follow in their full glory. While beautiful, this picture does no real justice to the canopy of rhodies that surrounded us on so many trails.|
|There are always critters.....of various sorts and sizes...|
|Beautiful glades of poplars rival the red woods. Especially since fairies sing and dance here...|
|Wild rhododendrons in bloom...creek side....|
|Even MY garden....made me smile. Happy Autumn. Love - c|
