Mount Mitchell State Park of North Carolina
The climate of the Black Mountains is more like that of Canada than North Carolina. Extremely cold temperatures during the Pleistocene Era allowed the plants and animals of more northern latitudes to extend their ranges to the south, but as warmer climates returned, these cold-adapted species became restricted to the highest peaks. Therefore, many of the plants and animals of Mount Mitchell are much like those native to more northern alpine environments.
It’s festival season! As the temperature cools Nashville puts up tents, sets out stages, and brings the vendors to provide the best festivals a person can find. There are craft festivals, music festivals, cultural festivals, and so much more. For now, go ahead and plan to attend Cheekwood Harvest, Nashville Oktoberfest, and the Southern Festival of Book: A Celebration of the Written Word.
