Views heading up Clingmans Dome Road
The paved trail goes to the Clingman Dome Tower.
Forney Ridge Trail to Andrews Bald
goes to the left of the orange cone.
The trail goes down....
before leveling off .
It's a narrow, but very pretty walk.
With less than a mile to Andrews Bald,
several trails cross.
We continued straight ahead...
Then begins a rocky and slight uphill hike to the bald.
Arriving at Andrews Bald
We wanted to see the Flame Azaleas.
At the right time, the bald is covered in blooms.
We were about a week late...
But we did manage to find a few remaining blooms!!!
Time to head back......
What came down... must go up ;o((
