Great Smoky Mountain National Park

By Julie Lambert
November 11, 2011

Hello, I live in Florida and last summer we took the family to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We have a fabulous time. We came in through Cherokee and made our way to Clingman's Dome. When we got there, we were amazed by the awesome view. We were also impressed with the Free Speech area. We made our way all the way to the top of Clingman's Dome. After that, we hit the Forney Ridge Trail for a hike out to Andrew's Bald where we had a nice picnic with the family. Couldn't have been any better.
