1966 Marianne's Smoky Mountain postcard to Catherine-Aug.

U.S. 441 Smoky Mountains postcard, mailed 1966.  Captioned: THE LOOP-OVER –US 441– GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK. In order to avoid an extremely steep grade the highway engineers at this point constructed a loop-over.  Located near the base of the Chimney Tops this has become one of the main points of interest on U.S. 441 through the Park.

Hi Cousin!

We only traveled 400 miles yesterday.  We only have 750 miles to drive today! Ha! Ha!  I feel sick as usual.  I hate to travel when I feel sick! Ha!  Cris drove 85 m.p.h. yesterday.  He could have killed us all.

Love, Mares
