Winter Sunset from Asheville’s Sunset Mountain

Asheville named the mountain just northeast of Downtown, Sunset Mountain, for a reason. Driving along Town Mountain Road that runs along the ridge of the mountain takes you to a series of narrow lanes with designer homes that face the Great Smokies to the southwest and west.  The iconic Grove Park Inn is far below, perched just above the valley.  On this particular winter’s evening, the Sun was just disappearing over the distant blue ridges. Sunset Mountain lived up to its name, big time.
