Weekly Photo Challenge – Ascend

Great Smoky Mountains

The Chimney Top trail in The Smoky Mountains National Park.

Several years ago on our first visit, we were unable to reach the very top of this trail due to the weather.  As you can see it was foggy and the stone was very slippery from the light mist that had fallen all day.   We promised ourselves we would try this trail again on a return visit.  The next year the weather was in our favor and we were able to ascend all the way to the top.
