Most commonly known as Chimney Tops, the Cherokee Indians called it Duniskwalguni, meaning ‘forked antlers’. I call it a steep 2-mile hike in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee – with a great view! Located not far from Gatlinburg, it’s a popular trail with limited parking. However, you can enjoy a view from home when you purchase a print from my gallery. Many options are available to select. Thanks!
Hiking Charlies Bunion
I shot this rose-colored black and white photograph along the trail while hiking to Charlies Bunion. Yes, an odd name – in 1929, two mountain guides from Oconaluftee, North Carolina climbed the area to inspect damage after a recent fire. With a sore foot from hiking, Charlie removed his shoe…the rest is history. The lesson: never underestimate the value of quality footwear! Putting aside the imagery that that description may elicit, you may enjoy a print of this rocky trail in your home of office. You can visit my gallery to select from a variety of museum quality prints.
Thanks for stopping by!
