Lake Powhatan Recreation Area
Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina
Our mission was to hike to the Summit of Mt. Pisgah!!
We return to the trailhead we located yesterday.
The trail began easy enough...
It wasn't long before it became a serious climb!!
It was a BEAUTIFUL climb :o))
That is until the FOG rolled in as we got near the summit ;o((
At the summit they have built a viewing platform.
Right next to the viewing platform is a TV station tower
which really seems out of place :o(
I wish I could tell you I was sitting down because the VIEW took my breath away...
That was not the case!!!
We waited around for quite a while, hoping the fog would lift.
However, that didn't happen and we headed back down the mountain.
Of course you know the fog lifted
Oh well, that just means we will have to hike it again!!!
As we traveled the BRP back to our campground,
we stopped at the overlooks along the way.
Pretty cool that we have our own "River Valley" overlook!!
Seems like the perfect spot to enjoy our lunch.
While we didn't get the summit view we had hoped for...
We sure saw some beautiful views from the overlooks!!
