A visit to a national park

Posted on February 26, 2014 by Lesley Arnold

“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” John Muir

This July I had the good fortune of traveling to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I had never been there before and I was surprised at how much the mountain fog really did look like great plumes of smoke crossing the peaks. The locals even say “smoke” when they talk about the natural fog. There are so many national parks all around the world and many can be visited in any season. Check out the parks in the United States!
