Generally, I try not to stand in the frame when I'm taking photographs. Usually when I do, you can see me scowling back at the camera or looking down at the screen completely oblivious to the fact that I'm photographing myself. In this case, I actually managed to smile so I thought I'd share it!
This is a pub appropriately named 5506' at the top of Beech Mountain Ski Resort and is open most of the year (the resort turns into a Mountain Biking paradise in the Summer). Beech Mountain is the highest town east of the Rockies and this pub is right at the top so I think it can probably lay claim to the title of "Highest Pub on the East Coast." It's also part of Beech Mountain Brewing Company, which brews in the ski village so they have great craft beer on tap.
If you'd like to check out the pub for yourself, rent out Slopeside for a weekend, it's in the ski village and is a nice hike or quick chairlift ride away from 5506'.
