Smuggler's Notch got it's name from prohibition times when bootleggers smuggled booze from Canada into the US. They traveled thru the notch to avoid being spotted.
Nowadays a seasonal road passes thru the high altitude notch, weaving it's way between massive boulders. For thousands of years these large boulders have fallen from the mountain sides, crashed thru the forrest and come to rest on the floor of the notch. On close inspection the boulders offer a variety of visual stimuli. The high altitude mosses and lichen add colorful patterns to the various textures of the rock. Some are smooth and shine in the light. Others are dark and somehow intimidating. There is something ancient about this place. It's as if some great, forgotten God's of the mountain reside here, hidden within the ancient boulders.
