Gary, could you get up to Newfound Gap? The NWS says there is 36" of snow up there!
Yes. No problem. The roads had been cleared. The only problem was trying not to run over tourists who always flock to Newfound Gap whenever it snows. But, I will say that the mountains received a lot of snow and that the snow was piled up alongside the road and parking lot about as high as I have ever seen here. The snow was still on the evergreens so it made for a beautiful sight against a blue sky in the bright sunlight. Clingman's Dome road was still closed. I drove over the gap into NC and there wasn't nearly as much snow. Always amazes me how different the two sides of the same mountain can be.
I'll head back up today to get some of the shots that I couldn't get yesterday.
