Sunset from Young’s Mountain above Lake Lure
As the sun disappeared, the last rays were on 6,740 foot Mt. Mitchell, and other mountains to the northwest. The vantage point is 2,800 foot Young’s Mountain, that stretches along the northeastern ridges of Lake Lure, far below.
Rumbling Bald Mountain dominates the west ridges along Lake Lure, and the setting sun shows the appropriate silhouette. In the distance is 4,000 foot Sugarloaf Mountain with the glow of the retreating sun.
