Smoky Mountains

This memorial day weekend I toured smoky mountains – Cades cove in Tennessee and Clingman’s dome in North Carolina with my friends. Our first visit was Cades cove which is an auto tour on the valley and mountain.

Then we returned back to the cabin – Black bear hallow in Townsend.



Enjoying Jacuzzi. I would call this as Jaccu Boy 😀

Next day, we started to Clingmans dome which is about one+ drive. Drive was pretty slow but it was great to see the mountain alongside. There were many scenic spots during the drive. Once we reached the parking area, we had to walk for .5 miles to the dome. It was a steep hike and the view from the dome worths it.

We had a good time here, planning to visit again during Fall.


  1. We visited Cades Cove a few years ago when we were vacationing in NC. We bought t-shirts. Did you? We didn’t go to the dome. We’re saving that for a future trip. Nice pictures. Looks like you had a hot time there.

    1. Climate was perfect for the trip Ron. I did not buy any tshirts, will buy next time 🙂 Thanks for the comments Ron.

  2. Stunning shots.It looks like you had a nice time.Beautiful landscape and there is no wonder you are going to visit again :)Thanks for sharing.

  3. The photos are excellent. Eager to visit those places,let see if i get a chance to 🙂 Travel more and share the pictures (at least i can see that places in picture :-))
