Reflections of Vintage Glass

Many moons ago, I collected old bottles in my youth, foraging local hillsides to unearth vintage treasures. I still have several on hand, a close up example of which is provided in this photograph:

Laurel-Snow Trail To Buzzard Point

Earlier Post: Laurel-Snow Trail To Laurel Falls

This was my second visit to the park, and I’ll definitely be returning – there’s simply so much to see! My intent was to visit Snow Falls, a ten mile hike. However, soon after I began – at the first wooden bridge with a small creek – I opted to ascend the boulder-strewn mountainside, where to my delight I encountered a series of scenic waterfalls, as well as an old mine opening towards the top. This was difficult terrain but well worth the effort, though it added 2 hours to my hike…

Beyond an aluminum bridge at the 1.5 mile split, I headed left in accordance with the Snow Falls marker. Following another turnoff (stay right, as left leads to a campsite), I came upon a second creek crossing – an older metal bridge consisting of 3 fifty-foot connecting sections. Then, further along the trail, there’s an area which was poorly marked: rather than continue on the white blaze, hikers should make a short detour, following instead the orange ribbons posted on trees. This sidestep reconnects with the trail, which is clearly marked thereafter.

Missing this turn may cause hikers to spend the next twenty minutes scrambling up a steep mountain covered with slippery leaves. D’oh!

Thankfully, I found the trail again and continued on towards Buzzard Point

While enjoying a great view to the east from Buzzard Point, I spotted several of these ugly birds effortlessly floating on thermal updrafts – 2 of which dive bombed me. Heads up!

After a brief rest to enjoy a peanut butter sandwich, I backtracked along the ridge on an old logging road which, at its terminus (a cable delineating property lines), has an unmarked trail into the forest at left. Thereafter, coming upon a fork in the path, I stayed left towards Morgan Creek (right leads to another campsite). To get to Snow Falls, one must cross the creek in order to rejoin the trail. However, the water was high, swift and cold…I waded in halfway to my knees, though could see I’d need to commit to crossing a depth over-knee deep (along a slippery, mostly flat rock surface under water), and bailed. Another time!


In summary, this was a very enjoyable hike of approximately 12 miles, though a rather long day. On the trail beginning at 9:45 a.m., I returned to my vehicle at 6:00 p.m., exhausted. Along the way, I shot a few more photographs of Richland Creek

Carvings On Rock Wall

This stylized family photograph was copied from a slide taken sometime in the 1960’s. I’m not sure if the carvings are authentic or not, perhaps created by tourists in the area. What area – I’m not really sure? Probably somewhere in the southwestern United States. See more.

John Oliver Cabin At Cades Cove

Related Post: see also – Elijah Oliver Place at Cades Cove

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.
