Mill Mountain in Roanoke, Virginia, July 2018 (video)

Again, Mill Mountain rises to about 1,750 feet, and I think my friends and I were at the overlook at or near its summit.  These videos don’t do justice to the view, although the second one at least gives you the best sense of looking down at the world.  The slope is so steep that peering down nearly induces vertigo.

I don’t know how true this is, but I read somewhere that Roanoke is the only American city with a mountain that is actually inside the city limits.
