Hiked up the ridge beyond the sign to the highest outcrop on the ridge. I did not find the benchmark though.

5th of the day on the way to Gibbs and back. Summit has a tree canopy that mostly obscures your view.

My first hike. I did a point-to-point, finishing atop Mt. Mitchell. At that time I was not yet afflicted with peak-bagger's disease, so I don't know if I made sure to stand on the high point.

A great hike out, but a rather anticlimactic peak.

Started at the Visitor's center and took the Old Mt. Mitchell trail to the summit, and then on to Mt. Craig, Big Tom, Balsam Cone, and Cattail Pk., and back the same way, plus the nature trail, for 3116' of gain.

Saw some nice spots to camp here in the open forest. Massive rain storm unleashed on us before we headed back to Mitchell.

Beautiful day for hiking. 2nd birthday in a row spent in the Appalachians. They're not West Coast mountains, but I'm liking this tradition. Did the Deep Gap trail and hit Mitchell again. The first state highpoint I've hit twice.

What a wonderful day. We saw only one other person on the trail from Mt. Mitchell to Cattail Peak and back. Really enjoyed this outing. We loved the quiet, the scenery, the moist forest, all of it.

Partner: Husband.

Crossed (rain, mist and sleet) on my loop---12 hrs. 1 hr to Horse Rock trail, then up, over to the Bowlen's Creek end of Ridge Crest Trail, turned and went to Mitchell, before coming back to Deep Gap, down most of Colbert's Ridge, and then 'bushwack' to Locust Creek and White Oak Creek.
