Newfound Gap Parking Area, Great Smoky Mountains National Park
On front of card: 'W-4 - Newfound Gap Parking Area, Great Smoky Mountains National Park.' on back of card: 'Newfound Gap, elevation 5045 feet, is where the road of the same name crosses the main chain of the Great Smokies. There is ample room for parking hundreds of cars in this high gap. At the right is seen the starting point of the impressive Skyway, highly scenic park road, that swings gracefully near the crest of the mountain and climbs gently to an elevation of 6311 feet, near the top of the 6632 foot Clingman's Dome - highest peak in the park. A glimpse of this peak is seen in the left background.'
