larvitarLarvitour Stop #6  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 6, 2016

Climbing this mountain was like going back in time from May (at Black Mountain Campground, where I began) to February (up top). I spotted my first snow-patches around 5000', and by the time I reached the summit the ground was completely covered in it. Fortunately for me, it was all soft and slushy, but if it'd been just a bit colder I would have sorely missed my micro-spikes. The summit was sealed in clouds (again... three times I've been up Mt. Mitchell and it's never given me a clear view), but the views were nice on the way down.

jakegarberRan out of gas  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2008
We left ashville to drive up to the top and about half way up I noticed the gas light was on. I new we were already screwed so I just drove to the top so I could get my highpoint in hoping we could find people to help up there. It was a very foggy day and we didn't see anyone until the very top. There was a work truck with a few guys there and they took gas out of a bobcat and siphoned it into our tank to get us to the nearest gas station. How nice of them and how lucky for us!!

Super foggy drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway on Easter Sunday. The summit area is well done.

After driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, something everyone might want to consider at least once; the highest point east of the Mississippi was of course irresistible! Started at Stepps Gap to at least make a little hike of it; albeit all on road or trail. The eastern mountains have a charm all their own.

Perfect weather and stunning views from the top. In my travels to State High Points, I began to realize that most of the fun isn't standing on top, but the wonderful sights on the back roads as I travelled to the summits

Made it to the top in 2 hours and 20 min. Solo hike. Came down on the old trail. Uneventful. The only scenery was at the top.
