Government Shutdown 2015?
Government shutdown 2015? Another government shutdown is possible next week meaning the likely closure of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park at one of the most busiest times of year for the park. The month of October is a very busy month at the park due to the fall foliage show and tourist coming to view the beautiful scenery in the mountains. Two years ago the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as well as all other national parks were closed down for several week during the month of October resulting in a costly loss of money to the park and surrounding areas. Another government shutdown during the month of October at the height of fall foliage tourism would be devastating.
Now preparation are taking place again by park rangers encase of a government shutdown that may possibly take place next week (October 1, 2015). The fall foliage predictions for this year were forecasting the best colors the park has had in several years. Let’s hope our government officials can agree on a budget and avoid another devastating government shutdown to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and other national park at this favorite time of year for many tourist.
