Craggy Gardens and Mt Mitchell

[This is part of  the ongoing accounting of my weekly-ish searches for fun, thanks to the recommendations of Julia Cameron in The Artist's Way.  For all of my weekly excursion posts,  click here.]

This morning I headed for the Blue Ridge Parkway and turned North.  First stop: Craggy Gardens.  This overlook is overflowing with people in the summer, but on a random Thursday morning in April I had it all to myself, and it was glorious.

After admiring Craggy for a bit I had an urge to keep going - so I did, and ended up at Mount Mitchell.  Highest peak east of the Mississippi, and overall glorious reminder of the beauty of these mountains.
