Animal in a zoo  Sucess!

I climbed this mountain a few years ago. It was the pinnacle of a 5 day trip in the Smokies. Hiking up to the parking lot there was a woman standing in the middle of the trail just staring at us. I thought there was a bear behind me. I guess she just couldn't believe we had walked all the way up there. Oh yeah, and visibility was zero!

Should have brought more water  Sucess!

I climbed this one from Elkmont campground. Wasn't expecting the heat humidity to be an issue and ended up dehydrating myself... stupid mistake. Either way I made it to the top. Great hike. Hiking from a lower elevation is worth it, you get to enjoy the dense forest and the nooks between the mountain ridges.

Extremely difficult  Sucess!

Okay, not exactly. The dying conifers near the summit are rather alarming.

Good Views - Big Crowds  Sucess!

Been to Clingmans Dome a bunch of times, always with a crowd. The huge stands of dead Fraser Firs always amaze me. Climbed from the parking lot, not sure I'd want to exert more effort for the scene at the top.

In the clouds  Sucess!

First time in the Smokies and summited Clingmans Dome after Andrews Bald of which I'll be adding a new page. Unfortunately we were in the clouds most of the time and it poured on the way down. Very impressed by the Smokies though and can't wait to go back!

5th Highpoint  Sucess!

Left from Newfound Gap and took the AT to the Dome 7.9 miles each way. After it was too late I noticed other areas to get on the AT to hike to the dome that cut out 2 miles of trail each way.

Great Day in TN  Sucess!

Drove up and took the short summit trail on a beautiful day. The big parking lot at the top was almost full...this is one popular mountain! But between people going up and coming down, there weren't a lot of people at the top, which was nice. The drive was great and the views were awesome. We could see everything, and I liked the signs pointing to the different peaks. Perfect day for this trip. The whole area around there in the Smokey Mountains is fantastic! After seeing pictures from years past, it looks to me like the forest is really coming back to life up there too. Highpoint #2.
