Welcome to Black Mountain NC

If you're traveling west on I-40, and take the first exit to Black Mountain, just as you come over the Old Fort pass which winds and curves all up the side of the ridge...and then you're finally going downhill again...just past the Ridgecrest exit I mean.  Sorry, I can't think of the number of the exit.  But it suddenly asks you to slow to 20, when you've just returned to 70 mph.

And as you do so, wondering if there's a speed trap because it's pretty bare along there, suddenly you pass the first businesses...and Ole' Guacamole's Restaurant is on your right.

And just as you pass it, there's this welcoming sign that my friend, Mary Soyenova designed and made.  She made a few more at entrances to the town. And don't miss the grey eagle at the Information Center!


  1. Hello,

    Beautiful sign for Black Mountain. The flowers are lovely. Enjoy your day, have a happy week ahead.
