Clingmans Dome - Great Smoky Mountains National Park - Skywatch Friday



This photo was taken from Clingmans Dome (6,643 feet) in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in April 2009. It is the hightest point in Tennessee, and the third highest mountain east of the Mississippi. Definitely worth the climb!

Great mountain scenery. Glad it was you up there and not me, I would have needed an oxygen bottle.
I love mountains but have had limitations imposedon me, so that is doubly nice to see them here.

Great shot of the smokies! I remember my first trip to clingmans dome. It was extremely foggy when I got to the trailhead. Unfortunately, I didn't go to the top that day - I wouldn't have been able to see anyway. I have been back since then, and absolutely love the view!
