    We finally made it up to the peak - Elevation 4241 Feet - we stepped outside to watch the storm roll in...

    At one point, it looked like this...

    It was the most incredible feeling...we were actually *within* the cloud, as you stood outside, you could feel it move around you. What was even more breath taking was that the "weather" was actually below us...so as we looked down, we could see the storm, actually feel the thunder and watch the rain falling at the base of the mountain.

    It was awe inspiring.

    Eventually the weather moved past us and we moved inside to enjoy a myriad of different and interesting wines...

    We stepped back outside after the clouds cleared and snapped a few more photos....

    You should start planning , won't cost you nearly as much as Disney.
