Our late-November summit of Mt. Mitchell proved to be shrouded in clouds. But our disappointment was short lived, as the trees on our way to the top were dusted in a layer of white. It was freezing. It was windy. It was impossible to see more than 30 yards in front of you, but it was gorgeous up there!
