Bring warm clothes with you to Mount Mitchell. The rarefied air up here calls to mind Canada more than Dixie. The flora and fauna follow suit. Luckily, in 1915, then-North Carolina Governor Locke Craig recognized the special character of this mountaintop and made it North Carolina’s first state park. Now, with a tent-only campground and some superlative highland scenery, Mount Mitchell State Park is a Southern Appalachian highlight.
