August 22 Fog Report…or lack of it.

FeaturedFirst Trax

Good morning my mountain-loving peeps. As I checked my emails, texts and LIVE cams this morning what I did see was a lot of “wet” and fairly substantial cloud cover. What I didn’t see was fog.

The featured photo at the lead to this story is from 9am this morning atop Ober Gatlinburg in the Great Smoky Mountains. The capture above is from the Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway camera. The tramway runs from 9:45am to 9pm daily and it is pretty impressive to see. If you’re patient and catch the camera at the right time you can see trams arriving and leaving the station. That link is at: Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway Camera

Here is a closeup capture from this morning:

If you tour some of the ski area webcams – many are down right now awaiting the season, however MANY are running. Check them out here: Southeastern Ski Area WebCams

Here is what it looked like this morning at 9am at the top of Snowshoe Mountain’s 4848′ elevations atop Shaver’s Center:
