This isnt related but alooong time ago a man built a hunting lodge on the Hooper Bald(5,500ft). It was huge. He was rich. He brought in Bison and Russian Razorback hogs plus much more. The same Hogs that are all over Wnc now. The Hogs dont play around. All the animals eventually got free and most are gone now but the Razorbacks are going strong. These were the first Razorbacks in the area or maybe the country. He also had a lodge in California with Razorbacks. Not sure if the made it or not. The lodge also had the first phone in Graham county. It took 50yrs to finally build a paved road called the Cherohala skyway. Which is the Indian words Cherokee and Nantahala combined. When I was a kid you had to ride dirt bikes or 4wheelers up Little Buffalo or Squally to get there. About 3hr ride 1 way.
Oh lord. Im rambling again. Lol
