    Greetings . . .

    Years ago, each time I drove the loop thru Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains, I would see a large number of hives beside the roadside. They are gone now (about 3 yrs ago). Does someone have a photo (please post) or remember these hives (100+) or know what happened (owner died?).

    Thanx,
    Dave W

    Mark,

    Thanx for your reply, sure hope you can find a photo that shows that wonderful meadow FILLED w/ 100's of hives. The large number of hives are what sticks in my mind, along w/ the thoughs of the solitude. What a place to call HOME!

    Thanx again,
    Dave W
