Sure Is Purty
It's called the High Country around these parts and for good reason.
Elevation fluctuates between 3,000 and 4,500 feet which made my already out-of-shape ass feel even more out of shape, especially traversing the plot of land that went from the cabin to the river.
I have only been to the mountains a handful of time since I moved to North Carolina because early on I had a few bad experiences; sometimes I swear it's like the bends or something - if you go up/come down too fast it leaves you feeling off-kilter.
Dunno, maybe it's just me but I do know that altitude can affect the senses.
They don't call them the Blue Ridge Mountains for nothing!
