What began as a plan to visit a location on Clear Creek, called Double Drop Falls – located in the Obed Wild And Scenic River National Park, near Wartburg, Tennessee – ended at a gate on John Q. Wyatt Road:
Though my dashboard navigation indicated that the road continued a short distance beyond this point, access had been thwarted and I needed to find some place else to hike. I ended up visiting several places that day – including:
- Jett Bridge
- Barnett Bridge
- Lilly Bluff Overlook
- Boulder Field
- Debord Falls – at Frozen Head State Park
- Emory Gap Falls – at Frozen Head State Park
Jett Bridge was a short stop, a spot apparently popular with kayakers to put into the water along Clear Creek. I took a few photographs of remnants from an old bridge, and the bridge currently in use:
I’ll post more photographs from other places listed in the days ahead…

One of the most popular tourist destinations located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cades Cove is just a short drive from Townsend, Tennessee. Wonderful views of mountains, valleys, wildlife and historical structures are featured along an 11-mile loop through the area. Along the drive, visitors will encounter the John Oliver Cabin.
The cabin was built in 1822 by John and Lucretia Oliver, the cove’s first permanent European settlers, one of many structures that followed – several of which remain, today. By 1850, the population of Cades Cove tallied 671.
A beautiful landscape –
And, the cabin –

Enjoy this high contrast black and white photography of an alley in a business district. This image reminds me of a scene from the 1971 movie, Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, staring Gene Wilder, when the character Charlie found the 5th and final “Golden Ticket” and was advised to return to his house immediately. His route home led through a dark alley, where he encountered the foreboding Mr. Slugworth. If you’re not familiar with that movie, never mind!

Though archeologists have found no evidence of major settlements, it is believed that Cherokee Indians hunted in Cades Cove for hundreds of years before the first Europeans settled in the cove sometime between 1818 and 1821.
As the population of this Tennessee settlement increased, so too did the number and variety of structures, many historic buildings of which remain to the present day – including three churches, a working grist mill, barns and log houses.
Elijah Oliver Place
Traveling along an 11-mile, one-way loop road which circles the cove, visitors have an opportunity to sightsee at a leisurely pace, enjoying scenic views, abundant wildlife and preserved homesteads.
A short 1/2 mile from the road, the Elijah Oliver Place dates back to 1866. Elijah was the son of John and Lucretia Oliver, the cove’s first permanent European settlers, and the homestead includes a dog-trot cabin, a chicken coop, a corn crib, a spring house, and a crude stable.
Here are some photographs I shot while visiting the Elijah Oliver Place –
