Face of Great Smokies
One of the highest and steepest slopes in Eastern America is Great Smoky Mountains as viewed from Fighting Creek Gap on Tennessee Highway 73 near Park Headquarters. For 36 miles the main divide along Tennessee-North Carolina line is over 5,000 feet above sea level, 16 peaks topping 6,000 feet. Mt. LeConte (6,593 ft.) at far right is more than a mile higher than Gatlinburg, tucked in valley six miles away at lower left.
