Saw-Tooth Range

By unknown


The Smoky Mountains Hiking Club was formed after a group of outdoor enthusiasts hiked up to Mount LeConte in October 1924. Enjoying the spectacular views, the group returned to establish a formal hiking club to sponsor hikes into the Great Smoky Mountains. Established in Knoxville, Tennessee, the first official club hike was led by Dutch Roth in December 1924. This photograph of the Saw-Tooth Range was taken in 1930. The back of the photograph is stamped “Jim Thompson Co. Knoxville Master Photo Finishers,” indicating it was probably printed by hiking club member James E. (Jim) Thompson (1880-1976)
