Mt. Mitchell is the highest point east of the Mississippi. I've tried many times to see the magnificent views from the top but almost every time it has been "socked in". It's still a beautiful drive up the mountain and it's also free to visit. So if you're in the Asheville, NC area and want to see some pretty views, give it a try. Maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones to see more than fog and cloud cover. You never know.
