Close! The view is from Pond Mtn NC. That's almost as far NW as one can go in NC. That said, here's absolutely as far as one can go in NC. Literally.

Oh yea, and if you shoot a couple hunnert miles west-south-ish to Chattanooga and get up on top of Lookout Mt, just over the Georgia line, I think you can look back and see Pond Mt.  in fact there's a spot where you can see 7 states.: Tennessee, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky and Alabama. You gotta move about 10  ft. to the left of that to see Pond, tucked in between a couple big mountains about 1/2 way between Chattanooga and there...I think that's "Dolly World" at Pigeon Ford..  :laugh:

Looking at that geologic marker for Pond Mt., I'm reminded of the one I saw on top of Mt. Whitney back in 1970... besides the lat and lon and the date of placement (1903 or something like that), was the elevation:  14,496.811 ft.

I thought they had to be  :poop: 'n me..  nailed it to the thousandth of a foot?  In 1903? (That converts to  14,496 ft, 9.732 inches, not 9.744 inches or  9.720 inches, but 9.732 inches.. ). I wondered what the tolerance was they were working with..  maybe +/- 10% ?  :zany_face:

I love highly-precise approximations..
