Old Cantilever Barn in Cades Cove, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Yes the barn will get up and walk at any minute now

One of my most favorite places on Earth is Cade’s Cove up in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. East Tennessee is where I was born and it is where my “roots” are. When I see mountains, my heart soars and sings and it’s why I built my house where I built it.

A few years ago Tall & Handsome and I spent a Memorial Day weekend wandering the roads up in the mountains and Cove. There’s a famous old Cantilever Barn in the Cove and a visit there just isn’t a visit without a stop at the barn and a stop into the past.

If you look close, it looks like someone else had the same idea…either that or the barn has grown a pair of feet with sneakers and it getting ready to get up and walk away!
