Smoky Mountains in the Fog

Last spring, Bill and I spent a few days in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on our way home from a trip to Florida. One morning, we planned on photographing sunrise from Clingman’s Dome – the same place I had photographed my Smoky Mountain Sunrise photograph from a few weeks earlier.

As we drove up Newfound Gap Road from Gatlinburg, it started to get foggy. The higher up we drove, the foggier it got. By the time we got to Newfound Gap, we could hardly see anything. So much for sunrise.

As we headed back down the mountain, we noticed how the fog and clouds were moving across the mountains. There were constant swirls of white among the mountains, revealing and hiding incredible views. Here are some of the photos we took as we heading back down Newfound Gap Road.
