Sugar Mountain is Out There

Hiking NC Mountains

A few weeks ago I shared this short time lapse, in case you missed it, here it is.

Hiking NC Mountains – Grandfather Mountain from Dmitrii on Vimeo.

The Valley Beneath

This is the photo you see at a 40 second time spot in the above video. If you look at the higher resolution photo (click on the one below) you’ll be able to see a high rise on the top of the mountain. It is Sugar Mountain, with one of the few NC ski resorts. Somehow back in seventieth they got approval to build this apartment monstrosity. A real eye sore on the beautiful mountain landscape. Of course the entire valley beneath is fully developed as well, there are a few country clubs down there with super expensive houses, just not as visible.
