Favorite mountain? BRO Staff03 May 10May 20100 Comments Jedd Ferris Max Patch, N.C. Indisputable proof that bald is beautiful. Amanda Powers Jump Mountain, Va. I grew up going to camp at the base of it every summer. It feels like home. Christa Albano Spruce Knob, W.Va. Sweet views on the highest peak in The Mountain State. Dave Stallard High Knob, in Wise County, Va. It tops out at over 4,200 feet and, on a clear day, you can see four other states from its peak. Charles Leonard I enjoy waking up to a view of Carter’s Mountain in Charlottesville, Va., every morning. Graham Averill Black Balsam, N.C. It has rock outcroppings, bald summit, evergreen saddle, views, cool trails, and blackberries in season. Will Harlan Mount Mitchell, N.C. It’s inspired me to climb higher—and dig deeper.
