Over Asheville a Week after the Snowstorm

Normally, December snows are gone in a few days, but this one is different. Touring Sunset Mountain yesterday revealed snow that has lingered for a week. Looking down on Uptown Asheville felt more like a European city in the Alps. All it was missing was a good ski slope.

Driving back east toward Marion, the view of the soaring Black Mountains from I-40 is always breathtaking.
