Rime frost collects on trees at sunset at Clingman's Dome, the second highest point east of the Mississippi River at 6,643 feet. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the largest protected areas in the Eastern United States and is world renowned for the diversity of its plants and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains, the quality of its remnants of Southern Appalachian Mountain culture, and the depth and integrity of its wilderness sanctuary.
