Summer Is Here
Here come the dog days of summer. Please remember to bring sunblock as you come to the mountains to visit. As you walk through the streets of downtown Gatlinburg, you may not always be in a shaded area. Don’t get a sunburn in the Smokies. Another thing to remember to take along is a water bottle. Keeping hydrated is essential throughout the year, but especially in the summer months. We lose a lot of water through perspiration. Last but not least, please do not feed wildlife and dispose of your trash in bear-proof containers. Trash kills bears. Human food kills bears. Let us be mindful of that.
