SmokyPhotos was implemented in 1999 as a gallery platform for photographer Richard Weisser. Richard has been taking photographs for over 40 years and SmokyPhotos was a pioneer in media delivery in the early days of universal connectivity. SmokyPhotos Blog takes the next step by proving a robust responsive repository of helpful and interesting information about the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. On April 4, 2015 SmokyPhotos Blog migrated to a self-hosted platform to enhance options and search engine visibility. We hope that you enjoy the new face of SmokyPhotos Blog.
