Day 14, 4/19: Mile 203, Mt. Collins (20mi)

Another great day for hiking. This is a view from the much sung about Rocky Top, Tennessee

View from other direction as the sun rises higher in the sky.

I love these shelters…a great rest stop.

If you look close there is a tarp hanging in front of the shelter, I think it’s to trap heat at night to keep everyone warmer…most shelters in the Smokies seem to have them.

Feels like a haunted forest.

On top of Clingmans Dome, the highest point on the AT (6667′). Got to love the funky 1960’s ramp and observation tower.

We were like celebrities…this family from Mass. wanted a picture with us.

Definitely a long day at 20 miles with a fair amount of elevation change. Took 12 hours from shelter to shelter with all our stops.
