  • Description:
    • After hiking back down from Mount LeConte, I decided to drive up the road a bit.  I generally wouldn't go out of my way to hike to such an obscure peak, but since I was so close, and Clingmans Dome is a state highpoint, I went up to the top of state of Tennessee.  I guess I can also say that I have now hiked a section of the Appalachian Trail; a whole tenth of a mile.  I am convinced that state highpointing in the east is a waste of time and gas money.  As you can see the views weren't that great.
