This is not really about gardening in TN, but the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is very important !

http://www.livepositively.com/en_us/americasparks/vote#/amer... You can vote as many times a day as you like!

The winning park will receive a $100,000 grant from Coca-Cola.

No problem, the title is fixed, and you're absolutely right about the park. It is not only one of our largest and most important national parks, it's key to the economy of Tennessee. Thanks for posting this.
