“Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else
There was so much to look at as we were driving on the Ocoee Scenic Byway in Tennessee. I didn’t pay much attention to the other side of the highway because it was a beautiful drive with gorgeous views of the Ocoee River. At one point we stopped to get a photo of the river and I found this enchanting scene. We enjoyed the drive and hope to go back at some point.
Ocoee Scenic Byway
Within this drive are rock bluffs, mountain peaks, Forest Service management activities, Lake Ocoee and the whitewater Ocoee River, all of which offer visitors magnificent views of natural beauty. The scenic byway offers ready access to whitewater rafting, boating, swimming and historic sites related to the Civil War and Cherokee Indian culture.
The Scenic Byway is easily reached from the Copper Basin area or West Polk County. In fact, U.S.Hwy 64 is the main link between the two sides of the county. (Tennessee River Valley Tourism)
