After a dark and VERY windy night, twelve hikers summited the highest point east of the Mississippi. Mt. Mitchell has an elevation of 6684 feet. Our elevation gain was 3897' and a distance of 12 miles. Views from the platform were spectacular. The smells of firs, sounds of birds and gurgling waters (not exactly a waterfall) were enjoyed by the team. Everyone met the goal in good time and good shape. A celebration was had at the end of the day...showers, good food, roaring fire, smiling faces, and well tested muscles.
