I don't se Mt Mitchell, NC on your list yet. It's listed at 6684 ft and is the highest peak in the Eastern US. I'm only a few hours from there.I'm glad it turned out okay. Tell her not to give up on hiking, skiing, and other high altitude experiences. She needed more time to acclimate to the altitude. We live, eat, an breathe at 6,500 feet, so altitude sickness is not going to be a problem for us unless we climb some of the higher peaks around the world that are pushing 15,000' - 19,000' feet.
Our goal is to summit the highpoint in all 50 states, which is how we have put 70,000 miles on our truck in less than three years. As mentioned above, we've traveled through 17 states and will be traveling through several more in the upcoming weeks. Based on altitude, here are the ones that we've accomplished thus far:
