Next spring the Great Smoky Mountains Association will be releasing a documentary based on Clingmans Dome, and the Spruce Fir Forests that cling to the spine of the highest mountains in the Southern Appalachians. These unique rare ecosystems are very vulnerable, and are relics from the last ice age. This documentary will be the first in the new Smoky Mountain Explorer series, which will encompass and document a large portion of the parks unique habitats, wildlife, and flora.
The Smoky Mountain Explorer series will be approximately 8 segments of 40 minutes apiece, with Clingmans Dome kicking off the series. The film will be available at GSMA stores in blu-ray format, and through digital downloads through iTunes.
Here's the official trailer for the first film:
