No. Not about the wedding in England. I am taking my first camping trip of the year TODAY!!!!! My wife's uncle and I are headed to Mount Mitchell State Park.
There are a few places in the world that still stand apart from the ordinary. Rising more than a mile high, surrounded by the gentle mist of low-hanging clouds, Mount Mitchell State Park is one of these extraordinary places.
In the crest of the timeworn Black Mountains lies the summit of Mount Mitchell, at an elevation 6,684 feet it is the highest point east of the Mississippi. For those who ascend this mighty peak, what looms in the horizon is a feast for the eyes—breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, rolling ridges and fertile valleys. Forested and forever misty, 1,946-acre Mount Mitchell State Park will provide you with some of the most tranquil moments you'll ever experience.
Work permitting we will be leaving out around 3:30pm or so and heading up. This will be my first camping expedition into this area and I am really looking forward to it. I was up LATE last night packing (I hope I remembered everything I am a really bad last minute packer and I pack last minute all the time) because I have been on a FAMILY excursion to see the big rodent farm in Orlando, FL (aka - Disney World). What a trip!
I hope to be posting some pictures soon and video when I get back.
Oh yeah, I know this is not actually a trip report (yet) but I couldn't wait to get this thread started. I wanted to have a place to post pics and vids and an actual report when I get back.
