Swannanoa: Afton Mountain
A reworked photo from late August 2011. Below is panorama by my wife at same time.
The name ‘Swannanoa’ comes from the Cherokee word Suwo Ii nunno hi, which means ‘a trail or path leading to and through the land of Suala, Sara, or Cheraw: residing about the headwaters of the Broad River. Other accounts have the name originating from the Cherokee meaning of’beautiful river.’
