Tom Blanchard, BWCCs mining coordinator, led this field trip to Vienna, a historic mining area in Smiley Creek.

We saw long stacks of cord wood, hand hewn over a century ago to fuel the boilers at the Vienna Mine.

We also saw an unusual, stunning creekside flower: Cases Fitweed (Corydalis caseana), in the Fumitory Family. Then our group of 19, hiked to West Fork Big Smoky Divide.

The Smoky Mountains are an important biological link between the Sawtooths and Boulder-White Clouds.
