VERY last minute planning for this trip. No Planning. No goal. Nothing. All I had with me is my camera and my Toyota Prius. I googled the best peaks in The Smokies and found Clingman Dome. Appealing enough! The drive up the mountain was beautiful! Filled with tunnels and turns! Very cool! There was a nice parking lot with bathrooms and beautiful views. Then there was about a mile hike up another 1000 ft to to the top! So beautiful! This was my first REAL mountain experience in my adult life! Where have these places been all my life??
Next stop is the Grand Tetons in Wyoming!!!!
