GATLINBURG, Tenn. - The Great Smoky Mountains are famous for their fall colors. Now there is a special viewfinder for those who are colorblind.
The viewer is on top of the Ober Gatlinburg Resort. It helps those with red-green color blindness see the vibrant colors as the leaves change.
State leaders believe this is the first time the technology has been incorporated into a viewfinder like this.
"I said, 'Is that what's heaven's going to be like – color,' because a rainbow, I don't see the beauty of a rainbow but I see what it must look like," explained Patty Jo McKee, a person who is colorblind and tried it out.
The viewfinders have also been installed at several other popular foliage viewing spots.
