Unfortunately, when we got to the observatory tower at the top of the 1 mile hike, all we found was cloud cover. It seemed like fog but at that altitude, the clouds covered all views from the top.
As my good friend John Deas says, if God deals you lemons, you make lemonade. Tim and I tried to capture some moody pics of some of the neat pines, hemlock, and other trees along the trail. It was actually quite fun trying something different like that.
This particular shot was of this neat little guy who decided to stick himself out away from the crowd along this hillside. The fog created some moody background behind my little tree and made for some nice mood.
Something that Tim and I learned after we came down from Clingman's Dome was that the temperature difference from there to Townsend, TN was 25 degrees. It was 69 degrees on the mountain and 94 in Townsend. Wow, what a difference.
