One of my all time favorite views is that from Grandfather Mountain. Its in the Blue Ridge mountains at elv. 5946 feet. There is a constant 30 plus wind up there that is amazing and has permanently altered the trees to look windblown. Awesome experience and inspiring to just sit on top while relaxing to the wind and taking in the views. There is a swinging bring to take across that is fun as well. Always be aware of the weather... you dont want to be up there in a storm.
