Mt. Mitchell – NC

Standing on the highest mountain in the Eastern United States offers a breathtaking view. From this vantage point, visitors can witness many different ecosystems present in the Appalachian Chain.

At this height the hardwood forests that make up most of the mountain chain have been replaced by pine and other evergreen trees that are more acclimated to this elevation. It is a spectacular view that is well worth the trip on a nice sunny day.
