Viewfinders For The Colorblind

Many people are lucky enough to enjoy the colors of the leaves as the turn in fall, but for the colorblind, all they see are grays, blacks, and dull tans. Until now.

The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development has installed viewfinders for the colorblind in three locations in the Great Smoky Mountains. One sits atop the Ober Gatlinburg resort. The other two are at Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area near Oneida, and at the westbound Interstate 26 overlook near Erwin in Unicoi County.

While glasses for the colorblind are available, this is the first time viewfinders come with the technology. The reactions will bring tears to your eyes like it did to those seeing spectacular reds, yellows, and oranges for the first time. A film crew caught it all.
