Did you visit a national park this summer?

All parks closed in March. People needed to stay safe. But parks began to reopen in May.

Folks who visited Bryce Canyon kept the rules. Many did not at the Great Smokies park.

The picture was a bit different on May 11 at Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It’s on the border between North Carolina and Tennessee. Parking lots were packed. Lines of cars snaked through the park. Many people did not wear masks. Philippians 2:4 is a good reminder to all of us. “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
