As you read this newsletter on Sunday morning I hope to have reached the highest point in 4 different states (on my way to 6 total in 3 days). It has been a life long dream of mine to go to the highest point in all 50 states. This weekend begins that journey.
I will be going to Brasstown Bald (GA), Sassafras Mountain (SC), Clingmans Dome (TN), Mt. Mitchell (NC, and highest east of the Mississippi River), Mt. Rogers (VA), and Black Mountain (KY) before returning home on Monday. Along the way I am also going to stop off at the Mile High swinging bridge at Grandfather Mountain in NC. Wish me luck. I’ll need it.
