My favorite trip to my ancestral homeland in the Smokies came in September.
Judy Collins of the Great Smoky Mountain Association asked me to lead a heritage tour of the Cherokee Orchard/Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. And all I had to do was channel my late Grandfather Homer Daniel Bales who was born in the cabin above on 5 January 1899.
He taught me what to say over 40 years ago.
