After checking into our hotel in Cherokee, North Carolina, we went for a drive just outside of town into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We weren't going to let the last couple of hours of sunlight go to waste.
The path to the mill is beside the creek that provides the water supply to run the mill.
Here is a short video I took of the sights and sounds as we crossed the creek. I wish I could include the wonderful forest aromas.
After crossing the creek, we followed the path up the hill...
The water is cool and clear.
We have been to Mingus Mill several times before. Pictures of our visit in the Spring of 2005 are here.
I hope you've enjoyed visiting Mingus Mill with us this time.
