They finally got the road to Cades Cove clear enough today and opened the cove about 12:30 or so. There wasn't quite as much snow left as I expected but some places still had a some laying on the ground. Afternoon is not the best time to shoot this mill but I didn't have too many choices today. I really wanted to get this shot from this angle so I had to include the sun!
