We took off a few days and drove up to North Carolina. The weather was great and it was really nice to get away from the Atlanta heat.

First night we stayed in Asheville and visited some gallery's and a couple of pubs. The next morning we got up early and headed up to Mt Mitchell. The weather was foggy and raining, but from past experience I know that is to be expected! We set up camp and setteled in...

Woke up in the night and went out... the sky was clear and the stars were amazing! We had perfect conditions for the next three days.

Sunday afternoon it started fogging up again the wind changed direction and started to blow and our extra layers of clothing started piling on! The rain came and it poured all night long. If you have never been to Mt Mitchell I can tell you that when the wind decideds to blow ... it is all that you can hear! The side of the tent snapped and blew in all night long. It was great!

I have never been a fan of packing up wet gear, but it was well worth it!
