Hi Brett, a lovely picture and what looks like a very lonely scene.Quite sad but not.
Best Regards from England, Brian.
Great shot! I love Hangover. You'll never hear that very often. Even though it's a great shot, you sort of lose the sense of how high up you are.
I also live in Georgia, and stumbled onto your interesting gallery just now.
You have a bunch of excellent shots of familiar places.
I have enjoyed my visit here greatly.
Merry Christmas to you.

History, General Description and Features: The Swan Family, for whom the cabin and meadows are named, migrated to the Unicoi Mountains in 1890 from Pennsylvania. John Swan obtained title to three 100-acre tracts of land and he, his wife, and eight children settled in to the vigorous life that faced the mountain pioneers of that era. Mrs. Roscoe (Harriet Swan) Ledgerwood, one of John Swan's daughters, who passed away in 1970 at the age of 89, had earlier commented about packhorses carrying in the family belongings - corn shuck mattresses, a few chairs, cooking pots, a stove and a few other necessities.Swan Cabin Interior
Through the years, various parcels of the original tract have been deeded to Swan heirs or sold. Swan Cabin, as it exists today, was built by Frank Swan in 1931 and was moved to its present location in later years.
