Great dramatic picture, AmE. The hat tops the outfit off a treat. Trying to place that view and need your info. where it is. A Lot of hills &c but no feature like for instance, the Matterhorn or the Great Wall of China in view.

It's on top of Bearwallow Mountain in western NC, south of Asheville. Always a good spot for a breeze.

Looking it up, that's a great lot of trails you have there. Bearwallow stands some 800 feet taller than our highest and nearly as high as Ben Nevis, highest in Scotland.
Latitude makes a big difference. At just 35-odd degrees North, that places it South of the S. coast of Turkey/Asia Minor, where it's hot as hell for much of the year. Hence your lush lawn on the top. Our highest are at Ca. 52 degrees N., which is a LOT chillier and the terrain is markedly more barren (Pic). No-one in their right mind would venture up there in a floaty skirt!
