Some Bent Tree History

The photo below (circa 1972) shows an old smokehouse that was built on land that is now at the bottom of Lake Tamarack.  The structure was estimated to have been built around 1870 and was moved out of the way when the lake was filled.  It was made of hand-hewn American Chestnut logs, and the door frames were put together with square nails.  The tin roof and the clapboards near the top were added later.

That Was Quick

21 Sharp Top Mountain Trail in Bent Tree hit the market about 1½ weeks ago.  I went to the listing information for today’s post, and it is already showing as “PENDING”.   The front porch should be a great place to enjoy the spring greening of the mountains.

Cool Drone Videos

Here are a couple of cool YouTube drone videos, shot in Bent Tree. I haven’t met the videographer, but the videos are “shareable”.  You can find more of his videos (including more of Bent Tree) by clicking on his profile picture (upper left corner of video).  When I stumbled across the “Memorial Day 2016″ video a couple of years ago, it inspired me to get a drone, but my own drone photography never really got off the ground (pun intended). Maybe one of these days…
