It is true that I am quite smitten with this particular log cabin in Cades Cove.
It has a nice view.
This one is picturesque and makes me swoon.
Yet, another cabin has the most spectacular view in the valley, right from its semi-enclosed front porch.
However, it is this one that has the ideal location next to a babbling brook.
The accompanying barn is conveniently located as well.
And let's face it; if you are going to have to overthrow a government in order to get those pesky park rangers to let you live there, it’s all about location, location, location.
During this trip I realized that as beautiful as the mountains are, I am, and always will be a prairie kind of girl. Give me wide open spaces where I can watch the horizon for weather changes and see my sheep grazing in the tall grass. Once a shepherd, always a shepherd.
