A kayaker enjoying North Carolina’s Nantahala River!
The Cherokee who inhabited the Great Smoky Mountains would bend a sapling to make it point in a desired direction and tie it down with animal hides. One or two limbs were allowed to grow vertically to create the marker tree while the others were trimmed. Many of these Native American “road signs” or guide post trees are still alive. Butch captured this shot while hiking in the Smoky Mountain National Park last week.
