My back patio at the Tally Ho Inn Cabin for Rent During a break between our sunrise shoot (we left at 5:15 a.m.) and our upcoming sunset shoot, I took my little camera on a walk from the Tally Ho Inn, where I am staying, about a mile down the road in one direction, then turned around and came back.  There is a nice paved path that parallels Highway 73, used by walkers and bikers. Bumblebee working the wisteria I've seen lots of bears! Although Townsend was originally chartered as a town in 1921 by people involved with the Little River Railroad and Lumber Company, its purpose today seems to be to support the many thousands of visitors who come to the Smokies each year.  Known as the "Gateway to Cades Cove," Highway 73 is lined with campgrounds, tubing rental places, horseback riding tours, cabin rentals, motels, gift shops, restaurants (which close by 8 p.m.) and park related sites. Rat Race Rentals The road also parallels the Little River, with mountains rising above it across the road, making it very attractive for campers and fishermen and tubers and hikers.  It is a peaceful place in April, but I am sure summer finds it full of families and vacationers. So far, it's great in Townsend, TN!  ****************** Visit my photography show, "My Maryland," at the public library in Urbana, Maryland, on the lower level of the building.  It is there until the end of April.
