Great Smokey Mountains National Park

Card no 322 - Sarah

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a United States National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site that straddles the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are a division of the larger Appalachian Mountain chain. The border between Tennessee and North Carolina runs northeast to southwest through the centreline of the park. It is the most visited national park in the United States.  It was the first national park whose land and other costs were paid for in part with federal funds; previous parks were funded wholly with state money or private funds

Sarah, who sent me the card, told me her parents spent their honeymoon there.  The card arrived at Christmas and seemed wholly appropriate for that time of year.

Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
