i think we're about a week from "peak" season but it's a beautiful time of year in the mountains. yesterday was the annual drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway for Upstate Cruisers. we had a small group meet at the pisgah inn for brunch and then we rode from mt. pisgah to mt. mitchell. aside from some blustery wind, the weather was perfect and the scenery did not disappoint. the pictures speak for themselves.
at the inn
just north of mt. pisgah
the view of craggy pinnacle from the visitor's center- look at that flag whipping in the wind
one of the many tunnels on the brp. can you see it?!
the view from the visitor's center
the view from mt. mitchell
it was a chilly 47 degrees at 2pm that high up- i'd hate to know what the wind chill was as it was gusting 20-30mph yesterday. brrr!
i never get tired of these views!
