The Sky Lift in downtown Gatlinburg (near stoplight #8) offers great opportunities for dramatic Smoky Mountains photos. The ride itself is a fun activity, but the vistas of the mountains and the town of Gatlinburg are fabulous! The photos above and below are examples of what you can see from a chair on the Sky Lift.
The ride is open until after dark, so you can get some wonderful sunset and night shots of the town and the Smoky Mountains. The photos below show the ride in May with the Mountain Laurel blooming all over the hillside of Crockett Mountain, and at the bottom of the page is a sunny day after a winter storm. In winter there are incredible photo possibilities, but the ride is not always open.
For a full display of Smoky Mountains photos please stop by the William Britten Gallery on Glades Rd in the historic Arts and Crafts district. There’s a Smoky Mountains memory waiting to ride home with you!
