Day 1968: Out and about in Montreat and Ashville

Our journeys have bought us to North Carolina, in the Appalachian Mountains, in the Blue Ridge Mountain, in a cabin up in Montreat. The air is nice up here, and that has something to do with Blue Ridge.

The trees, due to their concentration, and the elevation give off a lot of Isoprene, a 5-carbon compound, which distorts the air, and diffracts light, leading to the blue haze that permeates the areas skylines, making the mountains in the distance look blue in hue as the definition is masked.

Isoprene is a fascinating compound, as it’s frequently found as varying compounds combined into 10 or 15 or even 20 carbon compounds. It’s something I remember covering in natural product synthesis courses in university.

Ashville has been really cool to go around, but I don't think we've explored enough yet. We did make it to Vortex donuts though and that was great.

Anyway, that’s all for today, have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!
