Yes I said east of Greensboro. Many people aren't aware that there is a mountain east of Greensboro and there is a range south of Asheboro. But the Cane Creek Mountain, the highest peak east of Greensboro in Alamance County could get an observation tower where you will be able to see Greensboro from the top.

There is actually an abrupt change in elevation between the West side of Durham and Burlington/Greensboro. You might notice that traveling towards Greensboro from Durham when your ears begin to pop. Durham is 404 feet above sea level and Greensboro is 892 feet above sea level. Thats a difference of almost 500 feet or about the height of Roy Carroll's 561 tower.

Those are the Uhwarrie Mountains around Asheboro. The Black Mountains are in Buncombe and Yancey County (northeast of Asheville), and include Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak in the Eastern US.

The mountain in the article is Cane Creek Mountain, part of a small range of the same name that basically covers the area where Randolph, Alamance, Guilford, and Chatham Counties all meet up.
