Mount Mitchell on a Cloudy November Day

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I visited Mount Mitchell in North Carolina on a November afternoon a couple of years ago.  Mount Mitchell is the highest point east of the Mississippi, and although we were below the clouds, we could look down on the mountains around us.  The patterns of light and shadow below us made a beautiful scene.

What a different view! If I squint just a little, it reminds me of a roiling ocean.

|Gorgeous view We have wonderful views too right now as only the tips on mountains are covered in snow.
Then up north people are already skiing.

Beautiful picture! I was there years ago, but even then there were many dead trees, the work of the wooly adelgid, I believe.

George, this photo is the kind and quality that deserves to be printed on a largish canvas. I clicked to embiggen it and just soaked it all in, as one would with a museum piece.
