The mighty elk roamed the southern Appalachian mountains until the last elk in North Carolina was believed to have been killed in the late 1700s. The population of elk in North America dropped to the point that hunting groups and other conservation organizations became concerned the species was headed for extinction. In February 2001, the first elk were reintroduced in the #CataloocheeValley. The recovery program was initially a five-year experimental project with financial and in-kind support from several organizations. It is estimated that the elk population is stable. . . @smokiesfriends #greatsmokymountainsassociation #visitasheville #appalachiantrail #appalachianmountains . . #Repost 📷: @tatrocreative Elk in the #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #elk greatsmokynps visitcherokeenc #cherokee #nc #smokymountains #wildlife #wildlifewarriors #conservation #nature #naturephotography #photography #wildlifephotography

E. E. Exline. June 20, 1935. Lush Caldwell House, Messer Fork, Cataloochee. Tract 293, Elijah M. Messer. Fate: melting down. Beginning in 1935, National Park staff members E.E. Exline and Charles S. Grossman documented the structures existing in Cataloochee Valley before they were destroyed to make way for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Although 85% of the proposed Park area was owned by lumber companies and was being rapidly depleted, a concentration of people living on family farms located in the Cataloochee Valley were displaced. Some structures were preserved or moved, but most were destroyed.

Happy New Year. A brand new year could be considered the seed, and your goals could be the buds, but taking action and achieving your dreams, well, that is the flower. May the New Year be your seed and may you have lots of flowers to inspire you. #2019 #newyearsday #oldbarn #oldbarns #oldbarnsofinstagram #tennessee #winter #fall #trees #creek #nature #hike #landscape #landscapephotography #oldhouse #maggyvalley #cataloocheevalley #country #countryside #river #homestead

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on IG, but here is my top Nine from 2018 after very much thought. These are not based off of the number of likes I received on some of these , it’s what I was able to narrow down out of my pics. Two trips to Cataloochee Valley, numerous waterfall hikes with my wife and/or family, time with family, raising money for a good cause (5K), and a new puppy after my former K9 partner passed away from complications of old age, and athletic events of the S.C. Gamecocks are the highlights of my year!!! Every year , every day, every minute, is more special shared with my wife, and I can’t wait to see what adventures we go on in 2019!!! #mytopnine,#topnine, #groganfamilyadventures, #lifeisbetteroutdoors,#cataloocheevalley,#cataloocheeelk,#gsmnp,#gamecocksathletics,#k9hycomemorialfund,#ilovemyfamily,#ilovethenountains,#ilovewaterfalls

Started annual tradition of hiking at Cataloochee Valley after our first date there last year on New Years Eve. The elk were enjoying the sunshine today. #elk #hiking #smokymountains #cataloocheevalley #cataloochee #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark @greatsmokynps @smokiesfriends

This doesn't even NEARLY cover how many shots of elk I got. We arrived early in the morning and got to witness them grazing right next to the car. A young buck even walked up to our car, inspecting and licking the frost off. There was a mother nursing her calf, a piebald, one already without an antler, and then a buck with huge antlers. Most of these were taken in Cataloochee Valley. #likeforlikes #tagsforlikes #canonpowershot #canonpowershotsx530hs #elk #greatsmokymountains #smokymountains #cataloocheevalley

Seeing an elk in the Smokies has been on my bucket list for quite a while now. I have seen them in the west many of times but never in the east. We didn't expect to see one, but to my surprise there was a large bull elk hanging out right in the middle of town! Seeing something that at one point was considered non-existent was truly magical for me. #smokymountains #cataloocheevalley #maggievalley #elk #successfulreintroduction #bucketlistadventures #2018highlight #themountainsarecalling

Haven't posted for a while but I have a few new images this week from a trip to the Smokey Mountains last month. Autumn color was somewhat muted this year but you can always find something to photograph.
