Smoky Mountains To Celebrate 75 Years in 2009 - Share Your Photos & Stories !

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has created an interactive Web site to help commemorate its 75th anniversary in 2009. Visitors get a virtual tour of anniversary activities at the park on the Tennessee-North Carolina border and an opportunity to share photos and stories about their park experiences. How cool is that - YOU can be a part of this Great Smoky Mountain celebration !!

The site also provides a history lesson on the creation of this country's most-visited national park, and efforts to protect it.The website is http://www.greatsmokies75th.org/. The site will be updated through the 75th anniversary weekend on June 13-15, 2009.

Share your photos and stories of your Great Smoky Mountains National Park adventures through the decades! Send your friends and family a cyber invitation to enjoy your approved image. After looking at your adventure, they can upload their photo and story to become a part of the Smokies Family Album, too! Images should contain people and a recognizable feature, overlook, or sign that ties the image to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
