Winding one lane road along Middle Prong Little River in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. This was originally a railroad bed for the Little River Lumber Co. About 2/3 of the park was purchased from lumber companies. Little River Lumber created a logging town here at Tremont as well as Elkmont and Townsend. They logged in this area for about 3 decades. The last lumber was removed from here in about 1938. There is a Auto Tour Guide for this area that will explain much of the logging operation if you ever visit. Before becoming the park about a billion broad feet of lumber was removed from the Smokies.

    As you know by now, I just love scenes like this. I love the glowing green and the texture of the bark. The road meandering away is a nice touch. Well done.

    Oh this is my kind of road! I’m rather fond of trees – they’re like big guardians, and to have so many of them! So green too! Love the wiggle of the road off into the distance. Great shot!

    Seems like a place to head, if it wasn’t for the darn price of gas going up… well have to hike it..
