Places to visit in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Cades Cove

This beautiful misty mountain valley is perhaps the most popular spot in the park with its historic cabins, abundant wildlife, including black bears. The fall is the best time to visit providing excellent wildlife viewing opportunities and some of the best fall foliage found anywhere in the world.

Clingmans Dome

At 6,643 feet, Clingmans Dome is the highest point in Great Smoky Mountains National Park & Tennessee. On clear days you can see over 100 miles in any direction. The highest peak in the park is easy to access for visitors of all ages and abilities and a must for any visit

What makes the Smoky Mountains smokey? The mist is formed from the vapor given off by all the plants in the mountains. When the vapor is released, the molecules that make up the gas scatter blue light from the sky, giving the fog its blue color.

Dolly Parton’s birthday is the 19th of January. What better way to celebrate her than to donate books. This month we will be collecting children’s books to donate to a local school. We are planning to take a trip to the school and have our residents read to the children.

January Recipe Spotlight

Stuffed Crown Roast Beef

Although this roast is mostly seen on holiday tables, it is excellent year-round either spit-roasted on a barbecue pit or roasted slow and low in the oven. I prefer bone-in for extraordinary flavor.


1 (5-7 pound) bone-in beef rib roast
6 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups green onions, sliced
1/8 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup cayenne and jalapeno peppers, sliced
6-8 sprigs of rosemary
1/4 cup oil
2 cups onions, diced
1/4 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup bell pepper, diced
2 carrots, diced
1/4 cup parsley
Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small mixing bowl combine garlic, green onions, thyme, basil, salt and pepper. Pierce holes through the roast and fill each cavity with mixture. Follow with the peppers and rosemary, leaving approximately 1-inch of the rosemary exposed. (This will give flavor to the roast.) Season the roast completely with salt, pepper and Louisiana Gold. In a 12-quart cast iron Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sear roast in hot oil on both sides. Add onions, celery, bell pepper, carrots and parsley. Bake uncovered until tender, 25 minutes per pound for rare to medium-rare. Allow roast to rest 30 minutes prior to slicing.
