Artist's Description

This was taken by a Nikon D-90 with a 55-105mm Nikon VR lens and a Manfrotto tripod.
Taken at the welcome center to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, right outside of Cherokee North Carolina .
The Cherokee considered the waters of the Oconaluftee sacred. Part of the river was called Ya’nu-u’nata wasti’yi, “Where the bears wash.” It was a deeper part of the river, where all the animals came to wash and heal their wounds when they had been hurt by hunters. No white person had ever seen this place because evil had blinded us to its existence. The animals knew how to find it, and diving into it meant instant healing.
