Standing 6643-feet tall, Clingman’s Dome is the highest point in the Smoky Mountains National Park, located on the border of North Carolina & Tennessee. It’s a popular tourist destination, with a 1/2 mile paved path leading up a steep grade to an observation tower offering 360-degree views.
Standing an impressive 6593-feet above sea level, Mount LeConte is the tallest mountain solely within the border of Tennessee. Located in the Smoky Mountains, hikers may access the summit via five different trails. Hiking the Alum Cave Trail to the Myrtle Point Overlook, and back again, one can expect to cover a total of 12 miles. Print available.
These two photographs were taken along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Pisgah National Forest of North Carolina – morning & afternoon. You can visit my gallery to see these images on a variety of print types, each of which I can imagine would look nice on a wall in your home. Framed prints may also be customized to your liking. Thanks!
Hiking Charlies Bunion
I shot this rose-colored black and white photograph along the trail while hiking to Charlies Bunion. Yes, an odd name – in 1929, two mountain guides from Oconaluftee, North Carolina climbed the area to inspect damage after a recent fire. With a sore foot from hiking, Charlie removed his shoe…the rest is history. The lesson: never underestimate the value of quality footwear! Putting aside the imagery that that description may elicit, you may enjoy a print of this rocky trail in your home of office. You can visit my gallery to select from a variety of museum quality prints.
Thanks for stopping by!
After hiking along the Appalachian Trail to Charlies Bunion from the Newfound Gap area, located in the Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, I took another trail to enjoy the view from The Jump Off. Visit my gallery to select a print for yourself and enjoy this landscape view at home, or at the office.

Located 26 miles east of Asheville, North Carolina, Catawba Falls stands 100-feet tall, flowing over a mossy riverbed under a canopied Pisgah National Forest. This is the upper section of the falls. There’s ample parking, restrooms and an informational bulletin board at the trailhead.

Located along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Pisgah National Forest of North Carolina, Second Falls is one of two waterfalls which can be enjoyed while hiking the Graveyard Fields Trail – elevation 5120 feet.
