Well, maybe....for some of you.....
Earlier in the year Blue Ridge Country Magazine published an article on their website titled, The Smokies You Haven't Seen.
The article, written by Deborah Huso who also just published the Moon Handbook for the Blue Ridge & Smoky Mountains, discusses a couple of the lesser known areas of the park, including the drive along Parson Branch Road out of Cades Cove, and the return trip which took her to Lake Cheoah, Fontana Dam and Lake, and the Tail of the Dragon.
Huso also discusses the shady streams and serenity of Greenbrier Cove and the Porters Creek Trail. I didn't know this, but Dolly Parton’s descendants were from the Greenbrier Cove area.
