Mount Pisgah...

Alex and Sharon took us along the Blue Ridge Parkway on Sunday, 7th December. We went to the base of Mount Pisgah and hiked a lovely trail to the summit. Mount Pisgah climbs to an altitude of 5,721 feet (1,744 metres) above Asheville and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a good hike that gave beautiful views at the top.
