The mouth of the Little Tennessee
River opens across the TN River from the Ft. Loudoun Marina. We
cruised these rivers to their headwaters. Beautiful scenery, in front
of a backdrop of the Smoky Mountains, dotted with interesting shore side
stops, all cloaked in sparkling days added to the magic.
Sharing "sundowners" with El and Bill rafted along
side Halcyon enhanced it all.
Bill, a geologist, describes the forces that
produced these rock swirls.
Ft. Loudoun was built in 1756 to help
Great Britain prevent the French from penetrating the Appalachian region
during the French and Indian War.
than two years, the Cherokee Nation captured the fort.
