While we were down in North Carolina last weekend, we took the kids (and my parents) on part of the Blue Ridge Parkway, stopping at Mt. Mitchell and Linville Falls along the way.
Mt. Mitchell is the highest point east of the Mississippi, at about 6700 ft. So that means while C was riding on Papi’s shoulders, he was the highest point east of the Mississippi 🙂 The view is nice from up here, provided there is a view – since it’s high, you’re often driving up into the clouds. S and I were here several years ago, and our view consisted of my hands held in front of my face, plus maybe a few feet beyond that.
