A Day in the Mountains

I cannot express how much I love fall. It is by far my favorite season. My entire demeanor changes. After 2 full weeks of rain, Sunday turned out to be a gorgeous sunny fall day so I decided to take a trip up to the mountains. It was about 70 degrees and there was a gentle breeze. My day...

Landry loves being outdoors!

Newfound Gap overlook.

Clingman's Dome overlook.

"Clingman's Dome is the Smokies' highest peak and the third highest point east of the Mississippi. Named for a colorful Civil War general, Clingman's Dome rears its head 6,642 feet. The observation tower, located 7 miles off Newfound Gap Road, looks out on an ever -changing view. Occasionally the peak is above cloud level, creating a surrealistic scene of mountaintops floating in an ocean of white (allsmokies.com)."

Almost there...

Landry was tuckered out after the hike.

The BEST part of the trip!

I found a little water too!

He was so tired!

Come on, mom!

I've walked up to Clingman's Dome before! Its absolutely stunning and beautiful there. Tennessee is a fun place to visit in the fall.
