Life isn't any fun unless you see the humor in it.

Some pictures from Clingman's Dome, which is the highest point along the Appalachian Trail at 6,643 feet above sea level. Only one other mountain, Mt Mitchell, is higher. On a clear day, one can see Mount Mitchell, which is in Mitchell State Park in North Carolina. We were there on a decidedly UN-clear day. But the air was refreshing and cool at about 67 degrees, so we hung out on top of the man made tower that emanates from the dome, and eventually, the clouds rolled away a bit.
The spiral walkway leading to the tower.
View of some clouds rolling in.
The long awaited southern view, with layers of mountains.
