The Skyway to Clingman's Dome, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

This beautiful undated linen postcard says-

"This is the highest highway in Eastern America.  It travels along the main range of the Smokies, beginning at an elevation of 5045 feet at Newfound Gap and reaching 6311 feet at the parking area at Clingman's Dome.  Breathtaking views are to be had from many vantage points and frequently black bear may be seen along the road."

We just got back from a great trip through the park.... We have been to the park several times, but on this trip we did Cherokee for the first time. We didn't make it to Clingman's Dome though...... we will have to do that another day!
