Wednesday - In the a.m. Blue Ridge Parkway and a hike to the top of the highest point east of the rocky mountains, Mt. Mitchell (6,684 ft) - The afternoon and evening, I have arranged a tour that includes transportation from our hotel to Highland Brewing Co., Pisgah Brewing Co., and finally, Asheville Brewery and Pizza for dinner and then a return to the hotel.
Come on, admit it guys (and gals), you want to go too
I am hoping for no more than a 5 lb weight gain for this trip
Pictures to follow. I am actually going to rent my bike for this trip. Too much city for me to want to have to worry about our bikes getting stolen.
