Behind-the-scenes of a Smokies Life Cover
The cover of the Fall 2019 issue of Smokies Life features a man who, for many, was the face of the Smokies for more than four decades as he hosted nearly half a million overnight guests on the park’s third-highest peak. We interviewed David Brill who wrote the cover story, Dan Thompson who took the cover photo (could he be related to Jim Thompson?), and, of course, Mr. Le Conte himself, Tim Line, about how it all came together.
