Bend in the Cove

As we made our way into a rainy Cades Cove we found several places to jump out of the vehicles and snap some shots. Even though the rain was falling, and quite heavy at times the rainy gloomy weather produce some nice scenes regardless. Cannot let a little bit of rain hold back 9 photogs and their cameras. This was one of the spots we hopped out of the vehicles and shot away for a few minutes before the rain chased us back into a dry vehicle.

 

Thanks for Stopping

Reagan Tub Mill

The Alfred Reagan Tub Mill, located along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, a one lane narrow road open to cars and smaller vehicles in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Reagan mill is a standard tub mill, with a flume redirecting water from Roaring Fork to power a tub-wheel turbine. The turbine turns a grindstone which breaks down corn and wheat into cornmeal and flour. Reagan’s mill was well-designed and well-positioned. It is said that when other mills lacked sufficient water power due to low water levels, Reagan’s mill would continue to operate.
