WHEN CLOUDS LIE LOW, LOFTY PEAKS BECOME ISLANDS IN A BILLOWY SEA Although the blue-gray haze, which gave the Great Smokies their name, and clouds often harass photographers, they soften panoramas andmake fantastic set tings. From the crest of Mount Mingus in Tennessee, the twin peaks of the Chimneys appear in the center (page248) and the"island" ofSugarland Mountain in the background. A ridge of Mount Le Conte thrusts into the picture at the right.
