Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee
It was bittersweet to visit this cabin and photograph it with Pris, my sister-in-law, this past April. My husband and I visited had a memorable photo shoot here not long after we met. That was way back in the ancient film days, many decades ago. Per a Facebook post, this cabin may be gone as a result of devastating wildfires in the Smokies and the Gatlinburg area. So far, I haven’t been able to confirm its status from a news source.
The impacts on historical structures and park acreage are very sad. But the impacts on human lives are even more so. Heartbreaking stories are now unfolding. Lives, homes, businesses, and jobs have been lost. Please pray for the people of east Tennessee and help if you so feel inclined.
