  • Luftee Overlook

    Luftee Overlook

    A morning sun rises over the Smoky Mountains, as seen from Luftee Overlook, located near Newfound Gap & Clingmans Dome. You can visit my gallery to find many fine prints available, perfect for a wall in your home, at the office, or as a gift to give to family and/or friends.


  • Andrews Bald

    Located near Clingmans Dome in North Carolina, Andrews Bald is the highest elevation grassy meadow in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

    The area was named for Andres Thompson, a cattle herder, who, in the 1840’s, brought livestock up the mountain to graze on hillsides.

    Though less than 4 miles out and back, the trail is rated as moderately difficult due to an elevation change of 1200-feet. This is especially evident upon return, as the hike is entirely uphill.

    If you’re interested in adding an accent piece to an empty wall in your home or place of employment, you can find many prints available in my gallery – framed, canvas, art, metal, wood, poster, acrylic and tapestries.

    Hope to see you soon ~ thanks for stopping by!


  • 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.


  • Morning in the Mountains

    More specifically, yesterday morning. These photographs were taken in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee, and include shots from Luftee Overlook, Newfound Gap and the trail to Clingman’s Dome. If you’re looking for an accent piece to decorate a wall at home, you’ll find many fine prints available in my gallery.

    Thanks for visiting!


  • Cheoah River Dam

    Cheoah River Dam

    Here’s another photograph of the Cheoah River Dam, located in Robbinsville, North Carolina. It was constructed between 1916-1919, stands 225-feet tall, and, in 1993, was used as a filming location for the movie, The Fugitive (starring Harrison Ford). Today, it can be enjoyed on a variety of fine prints and other gift items, available in my galleries at Pixels & Redbubble. Thanks!
