Looking back #1

As the year winds down, taking a look back at the places I’ve been this past year and the marvelous things that showed up in my viewfinder:

Clingman’s Dome Took a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in July. Weathered the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy. After that was out of the way, got some great shots of misty mornings, tumbling water and views from the top of the world. Check out my July 2005 archive for more.

This photo was taken late in the day from an observation platform just off the parking lot at the end of Clingman’s Dome Road. From there, a half-mile hike takes you to the the highest point in the park, replete with an observation platform that provides a 360-degree view of mountains rolling like waves to the horizon.

Blurring of the mountains in background is so nice.
