Long Description:
In October 1948, Ansel Adams traveled to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as part of an effort to take photographs of US national parks for a Guggenheim Fellowship. The Knoxville Museum of Art currently has an exhibit (link) displaying on-line the 47 photographs created on that trip for educational purposes.

Discussion with a park ranger manning the information booth at the start of the Cades Cove loop road confirmed that this photograph was of the Henry Whitehead Place. To reach this location, travel the loop around to the visitors' center. A gravel Forge Creek Road veers off right from the loop road. After traveling roughly half mile, the cabins are seen on left with a small four car pull-off.

This photograph is of the back of the small original 1880s cabin with the stone chimney. Comparing the present day photo to the original, several of the details have been removed.

Visit Instructions:
Similar to the above. Post your picture, but there's no need to post Ansel's image again.
