Theme 98 – Fences

Cades Cove Fence
Cades Cove Fence

In the Smoky Mountains, a cove is any wide valley.  Cades Cove is a historic part of the park where several farmsteads and other buildings from the 1800’s have been restored and preserved.  The park service has built wonderful split-rail fences around several of these old structures and fields, adding another bit of realism to the whole experience.

  1. The most character laden of fences, only equaled by the British Stone Fences. Great photo, shows the subject to great effect.

  2. Wonderful is indeed a great way to describe this fence! I love the angle from which you took this shot! Very interesting!
