Cades Cove

Cades Cove is a broad, verdant valley surrounded by mountains and is one of the most popular destinations in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. “There are fields in the cove where there is no electric light in any direction visible. One can easily see the streak of Milky Way in the night sky.”
