Artist's Description

Sadly the George Caughron barn is no longer. It was blown appart by hurricane force winds Christmas Eve 2009. A lot of the barns that were there, have gradually fallen in and nature reclaimed them. I can remember back to when a few people still lived in the Cove. They were allowed to live there by an arrangement with the park service when the land was sold. They are all gone now including those that stayed in the cabins in the Elkmont area. I wish I had thought and taken the time 30 years ago and shoot a lot of the structures that are forever gone. Hind site is always better than foresight. Never pass up a chance for a shot, what you pass up today may be gone tomorrow…a block and tackle was often hung from the overhang of the roof to pull hay up and into the window up top.. image taken as mornings 1st light tops over the ridge to warm the already beautiful colors,and intensify parts of the field back of the barn…Cades Cove is located in the Great Smoky Mountains and one of the more heavily visited areas.
