After being socked in by clouds for sunrise on top of Mt. Mitchell, we decided to hike the Deep Gap Trail to Mt. Craig. This turned out to be one of the most amazing morning hikes we’ve done since moving to Asheville. The Deep Gap Trail always manages to swtich between alpine and enchanted forest, and this morning it was doing its best enchanted forest impersonation. Thick fog in the trees gave way to a spectacular light show once the sunbeams broke through. Unforgettable…
