Lumberjacks in Pigeon Forge? That’s what we found on a visit to the Great Smoky Mountains, learning a bit of history and culture at the Great Smoky Mountain Lumberjack Feud Dinner Show.
Our plan was to knock off another section of our AT hike while already in the mountains of Tennessee for the Trail Dames Summit. It took only a few days to realize that mid-July is not an ideal time to backpack the southern Appalachians.
A gathering of outdoor women that now occurs every other year, the Trail Dames Summit is a weekend of workshops and empowerment for embracing the outdoors.
