Morton's Overlook can be found on the right of Newfound Gap road as you are coming from Gatlinburg. There is a sign marking the location.
Arrive early--about an hour before sunset and plan to stay at least a half hour after the sun has set. The digital sensors can pick up light that the eyes can not. Use a tripod. Don't be discouraged if it is cloudy. Take a picnic basket with you and enjoy the show.
The clouds filled the valley seen from Morton's Overlook. As the day grew shorter the clouds began to thin, the sun would peak through kissing the entire scene with its beautiful hues.
