Driving the backroads in the mountains, you discover countless beautiful views and sights. The old homes and barns, the winding roads and the small streams and ponds are just many of the things you find. It doesn’t take long at all to get lost if you are not taking note of where you are, have a map or a GPS with you. The tourist destinations are great to see, but the real beauty lies in the off-beat destinations and peaceful backroads. This old barn was one of many you can find as you travel about in the Great Smoky mountains.
