new place

A new and very cool, in more ways than one, spot.

It is near Black Balsam Mountain.

The temperature difference was over 20 degrees cooler than the low country
at Davidson River Campground. Elevation change just shy of 4000'. The
summit of the road is about 5800'. It took about an hour to get back down.

To foggy and windy to hear northern saw whet owls at the top. We did hear
american woodcocks though!

We are back at the campground with a decent temperature of 57 degrees.
