National Geographic on the Great Smoky Mountains

If you’ve been a lifetime reader — or anything close to it — of National Geographic, you know that the Great Smoky Mountains in the southeast U.S. are a favorite topic. They just added a convenient guide to the Park to their Web site, mentioning travel in and around the region and several choice spots. “The 2,115 miles (3,404 kilometers) of streams found within the park provide plenty of opportunities for fishing. Licenses are required and must be purchased outside the park in North Carolina or Tennessee. Brook trout fishing—prohibited for more than 30 years—has recently been reopened under experimental park regulations.” Blue-liner paradise, as far as we can tell.
