Clingmans Dome, standing tall at 6,643 feet, is the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountains. Often confused with the popular man-made observation tower, “The Dome” actually refers to the mountain top itself. Set high above the tree line, the 360-degree observation tower offers spectacular views and endless photo possibilities. This vantage point delivers incredible views of up to 100 miles on a clear day! This awe-inspiring painting depicts the view from the tower at a special time of day. Low sunlight illuminates the treetops, and an orange sky hangs over the deep blues of the mountains.
