Well…not quite daily recently…

Photo #965 – 07.07.11

View from Rockefeller Memorial at Newfound Gap

At 5,048 feet above sea level, Newfound Gap is the lowest mountain pass through the heart of the Smoky Mountains.  It is also where Newfound Gap Road reaches the Tennessee/North Carolina border, and the Appalachian Trail crosses through here as well.  This photo was taken atop the Rockefeller Memorial, a stone structure from which President Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicated the Great Smoky Mountains National Park back in 1940.

Seems like a beautiful spot to dedicate a park!
