This weekend Pat and climbed Mt. Mitchell. We could have driven up to the top, but we opted to take one of the hiking trails from a stop down the mountain. We wanted the chance to take pictures from the mountain side as well as overlook pictures. The trail was labeled “strenuous” but we didn’t believe it. It was almost too much for us. There were parts of it that were more like rock climbing than hiking. But we had a great time, got some fantastic pics and really felt like we had accomplished something when we finally got to the top. Outpublic pictures are posted
On the way up there we stopped by Craggy Gardens hoping to take some of the trails. But a weather front was moving through and the whole area was covered in a cold windy fog. We could see ice crystals coming down from it. We didn’t get to do any hiking there, but I did get the chance to add a video to my one minute video series.
