Ascent Trip Report

After visiting the top of Clingman's Dome we followed the AT south to the top of Mt Buckley and a little beyond. Summit appears to be just off the trail a few feet. Descended the trail from the Buckley / Clingman's saddle to the parking lot. Warm, pleasant, but hazy; visibility not good. Lots of bees along the trails.
