Places of Interest, Power, and Enchantment

Jomeokee - Pilot Mountain

       Its name meaning "Great Guide" in the Saura Indian language, Jomeokee - known commonly as Pilot Mountain - stands at 1400 feet above the terrain in North Carolina, as a remnant of the ancient and eroded Sauratown Mountains

       A metamorphic quartzite monadnock, Pilot Mountain has two distinctive features: Big Pinnacle and Little Pinnacle. Big Pinnacle - called "The Knob" - has high and colorful bare rock walls, with a rounded top covered by vegetation. Visitors can take a paved road to the park visitor center and campgrounds, then up to a parking lot on the ridge. Trails from there allow access to the main Little Pinnacle Overlook and other viewing stations.


       Pilot Mountain is part of Pilot Mountain State Park, which extends to the Yadkin River via a corridor of land, and it is associated with nearby Horne Creek Living Historical Farm. The curved depression between the ridge slope to the Little Pinnacle and then to the round knob of the Big Pinnacle gives the entire mountain an even more distinctive shape from a distance. Other interesting rock formations are to the east at privately held Sauratown Mountain, and the higher complex at Hanging Rock State Park.

The Angel Oak

       At approximately 500 years old, the Angel Oak stands in he center of his own Park on Jones Island. Named for the Angel Estate on the island, the tree stands at nearly 67 feet, with a 28 foot girth, and a spread covering more than 17,000 feet. He is the 210 tree to join the Live Oak Society.

       Local folklore tells stories of ghosts of former enslaved people appearing as angels around the tree.


       Due to concerns of damage to the tree, developers were challenged by the groups Save the Angel Oak and the Coastal Conservation League, eventually leading to the Lowland Country Trust - which the Domain periodically contributes to - purchasing the 17 acres adjacent to the oak in 2013 for its protection.

Cape Hatteras

         Located on the Outer Banks: called an edge of the world by the ur-Lord on his visit in 2021, Cape Hatteras is one of the most beautiful and most high-risk areas during hurricanes and storms. As such is remains a focal point for the gathering of an immense amount of natural elemental power.


       Looking out off the coast into the part of the ocean dubbed the Graveyard of the Atlantic: because ships that risked using the currents off the cape were often lost off its shores for taking the risk, the Cape Hatteras National Seashore - named for the Hatteras Indians - protects parts of Hatteras, Ocracoke, and Bodie Islands. The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse: built in 1870, had to have its more than 4800-ton mass moved 2900 feet in 1999 to its current position due to severe erosion at it's former location.
