Clingman's Dome  Sucess!

Drove up and birded the pleasant but steep pitch to the flying saucer. Track here: Some day we will need to hike it from bottom to top to really make it count.

HP #13  Sucess!

Got the pregnant wife up for a completely fogged in summit with no views! Fast forward to 2021 and we were rewarded with expansive vistas of the Smokies.

Quick Visit in Heavy Fog  Sucess!

Heavy fog, very little visibility in late morning. Good to stretch the legs nonetheless.

High Point #5  Sucess!

Cool views on the way up and down but very rainy/foggy so very limited/no views from the top but still a cool hike!

Highpoint #17  Sucess!

Decent hike through a diverse forest, but disappointed to share the summit tower with maybe 50 other people. That and the loud road took away from this one. 7 miles out and back on the AT from Fork Ridge.

Clingman's Dome Summit edit  Sucess!

Completed this during the pandemic. Road to the dome was closed so hiked/ran the road to the summit, watched the sunset and ran down in the dark. Did this with my 2 20 something children so it was a very special day.

HP# 27  Sucess!

Too bad it's so touristy. I stepped off the paved trail on to the AT to cross the highest point on the AT and although it was like I-95 on the paved trail not a soul was on the AT.

Heading north  Sucess!

Did this as part of a two week backpack of a section of the AT before there were such things as through hikers and trail names. We had the trail to ourselves until we came to Clingman's Dome. Alone again after Newfound Gap.
