Artyarns dedicates a series of colorways to America's glorious National Parks!
What comes to mind when you think about the US National Parks? The Grand Canyon, of course. Yosemite, Yellowstone... but did you know that there are over 61 National Parks in the US? And that's not including monuments or historic properties! The 4th color way in the series, is inspired by the Great Smoky Mountains Park. Full of Energy and Natural Beauty, the trees, the morning mist, and the abundant colorplay between earth is sky is dazzling.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee. The sprawling landscape encompasses lush forests and an abundance of wildflowers that bloom year-round. Streams, rivers and waterfalls appear along hiking routes that include a segment of the Appalachian Trail. An observation tower tops Clingmans Dome, the highest peak, offering scenic views of the mist-covered mountains.
Our national parks welcome more than 300 million visitors a year, and all of them are fabulous visual inspirations! But, they are struggling! Under funding cut threats from the current administration, as well as threats from logging, oil and gas drilling, the parks need our help! As part of our series, Artyarns will be donating a percentage of earnings on this fabulous line of colors to the National Park Service!
