Don Wells and his wife, Diane, visited The Cabin Path awhile back. He documented our Signal Tree, and he also told us that he believed our large, twisted pine tree was a Native American Prayer Tree! I started following his group, the Mountain Stewards. They have researched Native American trails and trees and helped to preserve history.
Don just received a well deserved award. The Cox Conserves Hero Award. It was given for another project.. a handicap accessible trail at Amicalola Falls in North Georgia. Bridges and walkways were built..without any expense to the state...and it is now possible for wheelchairs (and strollers) to experience this beautiful spot in nature.
