After spending Tuesday night in Cherokee, North Carolina, we headed into the Great Smoky Mountains on our way back home to Kentucky.
Stopping along the drive for beautiful scenery and a quick family picture
Clingman's Dome is the highest point in the Smokies - 6,643 feet.
It was still pretty chilly up on the mountain, as seen in the leftover snow piles. April 1st is the first day the road to Clingman's Dome is open.
View along the way up to the top

One last pile of rocks to climb before heading home!
