Ascent Trip Report

Somewhere around 82 my family went camping in the Smokies. I was very young (less than 5, I think). I remember the campground and our van breaking down in Gatlinburg. I also remember walking up a curved ramp to an observation deck, which in my mind was in Chattanooga later on the trip. But after talking to my dad, it would make much more sense that it was actually Clingman's Dome. So I am going to claim it, but will likely return to bag other points and make sure to return just be certain.
