The Rainy Highpoint
[Summit team: Targo, Katrin]
Mount Mitchell is the highest peak East of Mississippi. We visited it on November 6th, 2003. As is customary for East Coast highpoints in November, it was raining.
We took exit 57 on I-84 onto US-23 South and drove all the way to Asheville. From Asheville we took Blue Ridge Parkway back to the north. and from there, the instructions:
1) From Asheville drive about 27 miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
2) Turn left onto SR-128 (into Mount Mitchell State Park )
3) Go 4.2 miles and there you are!
