    There are several areas along the road in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with wonderful views, such as this spot. If you’d rather not have to travel for such sights, you could instead pick out a print from any of my shops and enjoy this view in your home, all year long!

    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.

  • 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.
