Covid-19 Update: Since I picked back up on blogging, I’ve been sharing brief updates about our travels. Rest assured, we are taking precautions. Wearing masks, eating outdoors or take out (or in empty restaurants), and hand sanitizing. We are doing our part to keep ourselves and others safe!
On our way back home to Virginia from South Carolina a few weeks ago, we decided to take the Blue Ridge Parkway and stop in at Mount Mitchell State Park.
At 6684 Ft, Mount Mitchell is the highest peak east of the MIssissippi River and offers incredible views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
As we climbed in elevation, the temperature dropped and the wind picked up.
We didn’t have time to get out on the trails, but we plan to return to do some hiking another time. Thankfully, we were able to get back on the Blue Ridge Parkway and appreciate the views along the way home.
Beautiful views and great images Laurie 🙂
Thanks Joe – you are the best!
Laurie, I’m so glad you’re back to blogging. I so enjoy your pictures, and your stories.
Cindy – I so appreciate you always reading the posts ❤ Thank you!
Gorgeous views, Laurie! I love travelling through your camera lens.
and I love to read that comment, Mary. Thanks!!
Wonderful photos of a special area, Laurie. 🙂
It really is a wonderful area. It’s great to be at that elevation in the East ❤
Love that mossy tree trunk. I be it smells fab in the spruce and pine. Isn’t it nice to go somewhere that doesn’t require a mask? I had one on most of the day, it’s all moist and yucky but of course I will launder it. It’s just yucky while I got grocery. xxx K
Truly the best part about being outside! No Mask!
Although when we were in Tennessee we had to keep our masks close at hand because of all the people hiking on the easy trails 🙂
