"A pretty quick trip up to Clingmans Dome from the Fork Ridge trailhead. Ice was still covering lower parts of the trail after an April 16th snowstorm, but was almost completely gone by the time we descended. The weather couldn't have been better--clear skies, crisp wind, warm sun, high 50's to mid 70's--and the trail was interesting but not too challenging. Met a bunch of northbound AT thru hikers on their descent toward Newfound Gap." - Clingmans Dome, gooner, Apr 18, 2018
"One of my favorite hikes of all time. Snow, ice pellets, biting wind for the first two miles, but so beautiful. Moderate temperatures and sun from there to the top. After heading over to the Jumpoff and back, we stopped to chat with thru hikers at the Icy Spring Shelter. We managed to have the view from Charlies Bunion almost to ourselves, which I've heard is hard to come by. And for good reason--what a view!" - Charlies Bunion, gooner, Apr 17, 2018
"Quick side trip before heading to Charlies Bunion. We were the first to break through the blanket of clean snow on the trail that morning. Beautiful hike, windy, sunny. Trekking polls and gaiters really came in handy. What a view!" - The Jumpoff, gooner, Apr 17, 2018
"Snowy and below freezing, the pups and I had the AT all to ourselves. Some drifts of snow were 18 inches. Crossed over Roan High knob and Cloudland Mountain, down to Ash Gap and back. " - Cloudland Mountain, ChrisM, Apr 17, 2018
