Whether the road is black top, dirt, or a game trail, the mystery of what lay just around the bend propels the adventurer to push on – keep going. It’s hope. It’s curiosity. It’s that which taps into man’s compulsion to explore, to investigate, to know this world he calls home.
This bend is along the secluded Balsam Mountain Road in North Carolina’s Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
