Results of the November 2016 fire as seen at the Carlos Campbell Overlook, Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Compare it with the 2015 photo below of the same view. While the fire was a terrible tragedy for the citizens of Gatlinburg, TN, it will help renew some of the forest communities in the Smokies, such as the pine forests on both sides of Mt. LeConte (center) in the photo.
