During our exploration of North Carolina back in 2015, Scott and I took a hot air balloon ride over the Pisgah Mountains. I had no idea the elevation was as high, if not higher, than some of the White Mountains of New Hampshire. That white-knuckle adventure is indelibly imprinted in my memories!
Today, as Scott and I ventured out on a morning run/hike in Pisgah State Park –in New Hampshire – I felt so grateful to be able to live so close and “play” in such a beautiful place.
By the end of our 11 mile adventure, my feet were tender! So many ups....so many downs. Official elevation (according to Garmin) was 1795'.
Extra bonus: our adventure collided with a local trail race. We got to cheer some runners on and give extra cheer to Arne and Maggie, friends from our running community. Fun!
Both Pisgahs were beautiful, however I prefer exploring with my feet on the ground and not 5000' feet above!
