Eye Level Clouds

Near the top of Mount Mitchell, in the Appalachian Mountains, a view past the trees shows a summer evening thundercloud building in the sky. At this elevation (6684 ft), you seem as tall as the clouds. Mount Mitchell is the highest elevation in the eastern US. In July the average high temperature is about 68 degrees, making it a refreshing spot to cool off in the heat of summer.
