At the far west end of the Cades Cove Loop is the John Cable Mill, on the same grounds as the Becky Cable House, the Cades Cove Visitor Center, and the barn I liked so much for two barn shots below. The Mill seems the epitomy of rustic; very old wood grayed from decades of weather, an old walkway to the water wheel, rock foundation visible next to the wheel. Not that I’m an expert on rustic architecture… it just looks darn old and I could have spent several more hours there finding interesting areas on and around the Mill to shoot.
