Western North Carolina has an abundance of natural beauty, from mountain vistas to cascading waterfalls. However, no matter how long you hike or where you drive to, our favorite view can be seen just by looking up. Whether it’s sunrises watched from cabin porches and rocking chairs or sunsets watched from lookout towers or mountain summits, North Carolina’s sky never disappoints. The bluest blues and truest greys highlighted by golden sun and outlined by the dark, sharp silhouettes of distant mountain ranges. Rainbows after rains that disappear behind mountain peaks. Silver linings and golden edges of fluffy clouds resting over valleys. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell where the mountains end and the sky begins. A place where heaven and earth seem to meet.
