The One Place In Tennessee That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

There’s something magic about “The Lord of the Rings.” The Peter Jackson movies that defined the early 2000s have a huge following, with children learning Elvish and middle-aged folks rereading the books of their childhood. It’s a neat thing, and when we took a drive through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, we pretty much thought we were on our way to deliver a certain ring to Mordor. Just look at these stunning shots!

Pretty neat, right? Next time they don’t need to film in New Zealand – just come to Tennessee!
