Michael, afraid of heights, stayed below, so I took the journey up alone.
|On the way up|
|Atop the rock - that is Lake Lure in the distance.|
|Far down below you can see the road we took to get here|
|A dramatic view looking toward Asheville|
|Looking back you can see that you can go even farther up the mountain. Note the "Opera Box" on the lower right in the crevice of the rock.|
