Black and White Tower

Black and white photograph of Look Rock Tower, in the Smoky Mountains.

This black and white photograph features a concrete structure known as Look Rock Tower. Located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee along the new section of the Foothills Parkway, near Townsend, it serves as both a weather station for monitoring air quality, and as an observation platform. It’s also available on prints in my gallery, so stop by sometime and see what you can find.

  3. I’ve never seen a tower put together like this, very nice. I’m a ham radio guy and find antenna systems very interesting. I see a two-bay co-linear VHF antenna, a fiberglass VHF vertical antenna, and one that looks like an 800 or 900mhz antenna. Fun!

    1. Right on, John 👍 According to an informational placard at the trailhead, the tower serves both environmental and communication purposes.

      1. Thanks for this, Phil. The placard shows parabolic antennas which are now gone.

  4. Cool pic Phil, I see you’ve been off the grid like me. 💞
