Today’s Photo: Mt. Sterling (Great Smoky Mountains National Park)
This shot is from the top of the fire tower on Mount Sterling in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park looking east over North Carolina. The day before this, I hiked just over 6 miles and gained over 4000 feet of elevation in that time, carrying all my camera gear and camping gear. What a climb, but well worth it for views and a sunrise like this. I almost did not get out of the hammock, as it was so cozy. Fortunately I did.
