Very Foggy  Sucess!

Walked the easy road up. You can call it cheating, but its another high point. Disappointed at the view because it was so foggy.

Remnants of Tropical Storm Nate and it being under construction kept me from really enjoying this summit. t was cold and windy...I will have to come back!

Clingmans Dome #10  Sucess!

The man made summit was under construction, but I was able to find the top of the mountain and take a little stroll on the Appalachian Trail on the way back down.

Memory  Sucess!

Went with family when I was little, found a picture in my mother's scrapbook labeled with the date. So, I figure I might as well add it.

HP #21  Sucess!

Last of a 5 HP trip in the south (MS,AL,GA,SC,TN). Wind chill had to be in the low teens. Nice views of the Smoky's. 1007 miles of driving, 20 hrs. Scenic areas, interesting road trip. No matter the quality of the summits, it is still a pleasure to see different parts of the country. Headed back to Nashville for the flight out..

HP #14  Sucess!

This was our 14th Highpoint and the second one on this trip which included five more. It was bit cloudy on top so did not see a whole lot. Might have to visit this one again.

HP #43  Sucess!

Clouds and fog passing through so couldn't see more than a few feet in front of me at the top. Was getting dark so had to make a hasty "summit!"

Larvitour Stop #7  Sucess!

Drove up from Newfound Gap and walked the paved trail to the summit. Lots of slick slush on the ground... and on the observation tower, which they don't clear. Even though it was overcast, the visibility was good from the top. I didn't stick around long, though; the winds were biting.

Sunrise...not so much  Sucess!

Woke up really early to try to see the was cloudy but atleast got the highpoint

Great smoky mountains lived up to their name  Sucess!

Stumbled around on the top underneath the observation tower looking for the actual summit marker, but there seemed to be only a rock cairn at the top. State HP #31

HP# 28  Sucess!

We were prepared to hike in from Newfound Gap Road since it wasn't scheduled to open until April 1st. They had opened the road the day we were there, so we drove in like everyone else. Too many people on the paved trail to the top, fat kids wearing flip flops, etc.

HPH – Clingmans Dome  Sucess!

Great first hike for our High Point Hike series. Enjoyed hiking with Nasser, my nature lover son, Caleb, and Dana. Good conversations (when we could catch our breaths), good food, and especially good to be in the beautiful Smoky Mountains!
