Gatlinburg: The Gateway to the Smokies

As Gatlinburg prepares to celebrate its 200th Anniversary of its Eurpoean Settlement, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the history of Gatlinburg.  In Gatlinburg you can normally find on a good day around 30,000 people in this sleepy town of 3,000. 

What perfect timing! A local Gatlinburg paper, The Rocky Mount Telegram has a story on the Gatlinburg’s history and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

 To find this article, search for: Gatlinburg, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

  1. How about Shenandoah National Park in Virginia? I went hiking up there a few years ago and got cahgut out in the fading light. Had to walk back down the trail in the pitch black with only a tiny flashlight, stumbling around for over 2 miles. Half way down, the light picked up some bright eyes a mother bear and cub on the trail just in front of us. They ran into the bushes and I spent the remainder of the very hurried hike filled with visions of being torn limb from limb. I recall bursting into tears and hysterical laughter upon reaching the car. Fabulous park, amazing views and great wildlife!
