July 5, 2012, after hiking to Clingman’s Dome, the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, we returned to our truck just before this massive storm cloud rolled over the mountain. We feel very blessed to have made it off the mountain. We have heard that other hikers are still unaccounted for.

Me and my wife drove from Dallas to the Smoky Mountains last year. It is a long drive. If you are skilled at winter driving you should be okay. Those mountains get snow and ice in the winter. Be warned–the park facilities are quite spartan compared to Texas state parks. I can’t believe the US Park Service can’t afford to put showers at main campsites. When you go, check out Ashville, N.C. on the other side. Ashville is a beautiful town surrounded by mountains.
