The Black Mountain Range from the East

Having more peaks over 6,500 feet that any other mountain range east of Denver, North Carolina’s Black Mountains are dramatic from any direction, but this afternoon, with the humidity higher than normal, and the sun getting lower in the west, the multiple ridges were especially defined. Interstate 40 made the perfect vantage point.

This short video was made a few hours early along the same stretch.
