Ascent Trip Report

I left the Tri-cities Tennessee area at 5:30am and headed down I-26 until Weaverville, NC where I joined up with the Blue Ridge Parkway right as the sun was coming up. After stopping at every single overlook to watch the sunrise on the way up I arrived at Mount Mitchell State Park and made the summit at 8am. The Blue Ridge parkway in the fall is definitely a bucket list item. I even saw a little black bear.
