Description: Cades Cove with an early morning visit to the various buildings in the Cove before the crowds arrive. The Cove will be closed for all traffic for most of September, so this will be your last chance for summer photographs. This visit will focus on the cabins, churches, buildings, graveyards, the mill, etc., in Cades Cove. Several options for landscape options and possibly fog.  Bears and wildlife will be a secondary option.

Learning opportunities: 

This is an excellent location to work on various techniques using a wide-angle lens, a zoom, or the lens you prefer. A long lens will be handy.  You will have several options to explore and play with your camera. Tripod or monopod maybe an option.


What to wear:  It is August. Dress comfortably. Sunscreen, a hat may be helpful.

What to bring:  Camera, Tripod, water, snacks, and whatever you need to be comfortable photographing around the trail and water.  Raingear in the event it should rain.

Walking required: The amount of walking you do will be entirely up to you and how much exploring you want to do.  

How to find me:  Red Jeep Wrangler

Driving directions:  Cades Cove Ranger Pavilion parking area before you enter Loop Road.
