Smoky Mountain longing

Posted on July 05 2018, by Dave Vail

We like maps here. We like them because they are so interesting. And they can be beautiful. And sometimes we love a map just for what it symbolizes, a memory, an achievement, or in this case, a goal.

I've never been to the Smoky Mountains, but I've always wanted to go. So when I stumbled across this gorgeous map from 1900, I fell in love. The colors are beautiful, the finely drawn contours trace out hidden valleys and beautiful peaks, and there are long forgotten cabins and villages. (Right click to enlarge.)

If you'd like a copy in silk or paper, we have some here.
