Virginia, United States
Whitetop Mountain is the second highest mountain in the U.S. state of Virginia, after nearby Mount Rogers. It is located in Grayson County. Whitetop was the location of the White Top Folk Festival from 1932 to 1939, with the exception of 1937. The mountain is also unique for the fact that it represents an ecological "island" of flora and fauna commonly found much further north than Virginia, such as old growth red spruce and other northern hardwoods.
