tiogaRain and Clouds  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2008

tioga

Started in the rain from Newfound Gap and climbed via the Appalachian Trail going south. It rained on and off on the way up and the top was inside a cloud, windy, and chilly. I climbed with my brother and a friend and we ate lunch on top and quickly jumped on the trail to go back down. During the descent we got some decent views as it was beginning to clear.

Walked up the paved path -- and the cool observation tower -- the day before we went up Mount LeConte.

I loved the view, but feel like I haven't quite earned it yet. I'll have to hike up from Chimney Tops next time.

Trail ran to the summit from the Deep Creek TH in Bryson City. Ran via the Noland Divide, Noland Creek, and Forney Ridge Trails. Total distance was approximately 21 miles with 7000 feet of vertical gain. Run was fully self-supported as there is no vehicle access along this route.

Six2AT Hike  Sucess!

I climbed the summit tower in April of this year as a part of a section hike. It was a couple of days after a huge windstorm and there were many, many blowdowns on the way north into Newfound Gap.

First ascent was part of my 2000 AT thru-hike. It was cloudy with low visibility. Went back last fall (visiting on a fall weekend is a mistake) and got great views and autumn color too!

TJ311Attack of the Aphid  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 9, 2007

TJ311

We hiked from Newfound Gap to Clingman's Dome via the Appalachian Trail. Along the trail, we noticed so many large trees had uprooted and fallen over. The ranger told us it was Aphid outbreak. It was great weather going up, but once @ the strange summit, it started to pour. Visibility was about 1 foot and it was a cold rain. We hitched a ride back down to our car in the back of a pick up truck.

Rainy day. Climbed up the weird lookout tower, where I could see nothing, then quickly retreated and kept hiking.

People, dead trees and a space ship looking structure at the top. I guess if you're going to the Smokey Mountains you've got to experience this.

Drove up to the vast parking lot, and then walked the rest of the way. One tough peak. First state high point though.

This was part of an 11 state highpoint trip that started in St Louis and ended in Missoula Montana. Great spot to stretch the legs!

Did Clingman's Dome the easy way shortly after getting hitched. It was really windy, and it was a shame to see what was happening to the trees at the summit, but the views were still great.

Easy hike with no view because of the haze caused mostly from pollution. A fun way to stretch the legs, however.

For being such a lame hike I was hoping at least for a view - but no such luck...super dense fog and even some thunder and lightening! Fun climbing (I mean walking) with my friends anyway!

wear flip flops and bring along a Big Gulp from 7-11.
Also hiked up 8/4/91 and 4/1/98 on my AT Thru-hike. Definitely a beatiful area.
