Located about 90 minutes outside Asheville, North Carolina is Mount Mitchell–at 6684 ft. it’s the tallest peak east of the Mississippi, it also boast crosswinds of up to 178mph at the peak.

Getting these late dusk shots nearly caused me an unplanned sleepover inside the park… nada, I raced down the mountain and beat the 9pm lockout by about 10 minutes.
