Morning sun filters through the trees at John Olivers Cabin with a few dogwoods in the background…The cabin is almost completly surrounded by split-rail fence also……The Oliver’s bought land in the Cove in 1826 and this cabin site remained in the family until the Park was established. The house is typical of many found on the eastern frontier in the mid-1850s, and reflects the skills and techniques brought into the mountains by descendants of British and European immigrants. This cabin is located on the Cades Cove Loop Road, in the Great Smoky Mountain N.P.

    Beautiful work, Gary! I like the composition a lot. Gorgeous lighting conditions; and you’re right, the dogwoods are just splendid. I sure wish I’d been able to be back there this year for the bloom and all. Take care, Amigo! Cheers! Chris
