Found in the Forest

While hiking the Laurel-Snow Trail in Dayton, Tennessee, morning sunlight crested the high gorge, streaming into the forest upon this historic setting. Over one hundred years ago, the Dayton Coal & Iron Company operated mines in this area, from which industrial vestiges remain. In time, the business closed pursuant to an accident in which many miners perished. Today, voices from the past echo through canyon walls, as conveyed to me by an elderly Park Ranger on site.

You can find prints and other gifts in the following galleries…
