I needed to congratulate two elegant women on career advancements so I took them to Lucky’s Coffee Garage to enjoy a shot of espresso in ginger beer. I’m a fan of fizzy coffee and this is my favorite combination by far. I also recommend Lucky’s cold brew syrup in mexican coke and espresso in blood orange soda.
As the aerial tram car ascended into the cloud cover the driver announced, “Welcome to the cloud – this is where you store your photos.”
Once a year, on a day with horrible weather, I take the tram up Cannon Mountain. I like it cold and cloudy but I have also experienced it bright and snowy. The top of Cannon Mountain is a lot of fun in good weather but I feel that it is best experienced in the clouds. There is something amazing about being in the clouds as they blow past you and obscure the view.
Cannon Mountain Tips
- I love taking the tram up to the top of Cannon on the last weekend of the season in October because the top is often covered in snow.
- The tram car swings at the first support tower which is my favorite.
- You can allegedly see all the way to Canada from the top on a clear day. Clear days are lame.
