  • Chimney Tops

    Visitors of the Smoky Mountains can reach Chimney Tops – a mountain that the Cherokee Indians called Duniskwalguni, meaning ‘forked antlers’ – after a two mile hike along a steep trail. It’s a beautiful view, and one that you can enjoy everyday on prints available in my gallery at Fine Art America. I hope you’ll visit and find something you like, either for yourself or to give as a gift. Thanks!


  • Shots From the Trail

    This random collection of various photographs were taken at different places and times. However, you can see all three pictures (and more) at one location, when you visit my gallery. Hope to see you soon…


  • Clingmans Dome

    Located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park along the state line between North Carolina and Tennessee, Clingmans Dome is a popular tourist destination. So much so, that on any given good-weather day, visitors may observe vehicles with license plates from 25 or more states.

    From the parking area, it’s a short 1/2 mile hike along a paved trail, though the grade is quite steep. As such, there are several benches along the way on which to rest. There’s also a gift shop & restrooms.

    Standing 6,643-feet tall, Clingmans Dome is both the tallest mountain in the park and in the state of Tennessee. It’s also the highest point along the 2,192-mile Appalachian Trail, and the third tallest mountain (after Mount Mitchell and Mount Craig) east of the Mississippi River. Lastly, it’s the 17th tallest mountain in the United States of America.

    If you’d be interested in a fine print, you can see more in my gallery.

  • Lower Lynn Camp Falls

    Lower Lynn Camp Falls

    Located along the Middle Prong Trail in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, in Tennessee, the 35-foot Lower Lynn Camp Falls is an easy 1/2 mile hike which parallels Lynn Camp Prong.

    Turning on Tremont Road, the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont is 2.2 miles, left at the stop sign. It has a restroom and a small gift shop (maps, t-shirts, hats, etc.). This is where you would park if hiking to Spruce Flats Falls. Continue another 3.1 miles along a gravel road to reach the trailhead.

    The Middle Prong Trail was originally a railroad bed used by the Little River Railroad & Lumber Company, based in Townsend, Tennessee, which was one of the largest commercial logging operations in southern Appalachia, in operation for 38 years until 1939, with 150 miles of railroad. Visitors can find more information available at the Little River Railroad Museum web site.

    Immediately after crossing the river on a footbridge, the trail forks – stay to the left to follow the river, and watch for horse droppings (equestrians allowed). Depending upon what you have planned for the day, you might consider hiking 4.1 miles on the same trail to visit Indian Flats Falls.
