The view is always changing and you can see it from almost anywhere on the property, but especially from the front of the house. The best times to take a photograph is very early in the morning or just before the sun goes down. My favorite time of year is in winter, because the humidity is low making it so you can see the details on Mount Mitchell. I also prefer winter because with the leaves off the tress the view is even more expansive. The sky can change so quickly, you'll find taking a good picture can be a fleeting thing, so you have to stay on your toes to get the best shot. In the winter of 2017 we had some shallow rooted trees removed from either side, so you can see even better now!

All of these images were taken with my iPhone and were adjusted minimally, if at all.

The farthest mountain range you see is the Black Mountains. The largest mountain in the frame is Mount Mitchell, which is about 6699 feet above sea level. Scientists have found evidence of habitation in the Black Mountain region going back to the Archaic period (8000-1000 BC).
