I agree, there will always be that person that becomes lazy in the smokies, but to all the people that go every year, for the most part, I think the park is respected. It's just the powerful few that make there mark on nature. Let us not be discouraged that we have to pick up after them..... it's sad that they pollute the earth, but even I have the urge to litter, I just don't listen to that urge. Take the problem into your own hands, it's no big deal, just pick up the trash you see, call it your good deed for the day, call it whatever you want , whatever it takes to make you pick up that trash and make the place more beautiful, well put man, it stinks that people litter, but we still have the ability to pick the stuff up!
God bless, Phil
