It was a windy afternoon on a five day AT trip. There was a porta-john on top that had to have one of the best views in the Smokies.

I had a lot of fun climbing to the overlook tower with a couple of young nephews who found more joy in scaling every rock face that lined the paved walkway than the views from the top.

I hate that there is a road to the top! We went to Charlies Bunion first and then walked up the paved path to the summit. It would be a lot better if there weren't so many people up there!

Even in the clouds and fog it was still a great place. About 49 degrees on top in July was nice, especially if you're from Texas. Saw a Bear on the way down too!

I summited Clingmans Dome, Mount Love, and Mount Buckley all during the same hike. Clingmans Dome was my second State Highpoint of the day (Sassafras Mountain was the first), and my 34th State Highpoint reached overall.

With my 2 year old son and parents. Unseasonably cool. Fantastic views from the gaudy concrete structure at the top.

Man that paved half-mile "hike" was tough. Wish I had my rollerblades, that would have been a funny sight.

I wish southerners would stop putting observation decks on their high points.

This is my 2nd time up. The first time was on a backpacking trip in the smokies which yielded no view because the weather was so bad I could only see about 20yards. This time, even though I took the drive up, I could see the whole way to Mount Mitchell. Bummer I can't get to it's summit because it is closed for "construction".

Cheated and took the road, but hiked the steep path for about a mile. Nice views, even with the fog.

Probably won't be a busier day until...maybe Memorial Day. Everyone enjoying the last gasp of summer, with pleasant temperatures - borderline t-shirt weather. Interestingly, Americans seemed to be vastly outnumbered by international visitors.

We were driving through the NP and decided to see if the road was still open and this was the last weekend it was that season. I cannot pass up a chance to see any mountain view and take a picture so off I went. It was chilly, windy and almost no one was there so I felt like I was on top of the park; very pretty 360 degree views! I actually hiked very near here 26 years ago but didn't finish the trek up to the Dome.
