Description Great Smoky Mountains Gatlinburg TN Roaring Fork Gift of LifeAnother scenic landscape photo from the Roaring Fork in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park outside of Gatlinburg TN.I named this image The Gift of Life for a few reasons. Aside from the obvious meaning of the water supplying life to the lush forest around it, and the way such places have a way of nourishing the soul, this wonderful portion of river is right behind a historic homestead and surely offered the owners the means to live in this somewhat harsh environment. This gorgeous area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park definitely embodies the name The Gift of Life in my opinion.Faves and Comments are appreciated! Hope you enjoy it! ;-)
