In 2017, I take you behind the scenes with me while I create handmade platinum archival plates of the historic architecture in Cades Cove. You will have access to private videos that I create and share via the members-only Smokies Insider Newsletter. My plan is to donate a full set of the platinum plates to at least one historic preservation organization to ensure the long-term survival of the plates. I am donating 10% of the net profits to Friends of the Smokies, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to preserving and protecting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There are 6 major project areas to include: greatest need, wildlife/wilderness, environmental education, protection of historic places, improve visitor experience. I will be specifying all the donations this year go towards the protection of historic places fund.
I spent years wasting time researching and being frustrated with poor and misinformation for the types of adventures and fun that is available in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I started keeping a journal of all my hikes, photo adventures, wildflower hikes, viewing of fall colors at their peak, and more, which ultimately has turned into the Smokies Insider Guides that I publish for members. I want everyone to spend their time having fun and enjoying nature, not wasting their time researching or chasing bad information.
