Pence speaks on mental health benefits of getting outdoors
GATLINBURG, TN (AP) — Second Lady Karen Pence visited Great Smoky Mountains National Park to talk about the mental health benefits of spending time outdoors as officials announced the second phase of a plan to reopen all park trails.
The White House said Pence was accompanied on her visit Tuesday by Deputy Secretary of Interior Katharine MacGregor.
Both took part in a ceremonial road reopening at the national park and hiked up a trail during their visit.
News outlets report all park trails at the national park will now reopen on Saturday while campgrounds and visitor centers will remain closed.
