Back to Nature

A couple of weeks ago Brian & I got to get away to the mountains for the weekend for some much needed R&R. (NO KIDS!)The family that we're building a house for graciously offered us their mountain house and we graciously excepted.

So off we went to Blowing Rock NC. This is a small little mountain community right off the Appalachian Trail and it's simply breath-taking. It has one of those charming little Main Streets with the ice cream parlor next door to the art gallery. There are so lovely B&B's we would like to go back and visit. There where quaint little restaurants and shops. And the park was full of kids having a great time.

We were able to sleep late, see a few deer, Brian even killed a snake. We got the 4-wheeler out and went exploring and found the waterfall and walked down as far as we could. We had a wonderful time, Thanks Gary & Amy!

We stopped by the Appilachian Trail

There was this beautiful waterfall right down the hollow from where the house was. We had to hike a little bit to get there, but it was SO BACK TO NATURE. It was amazing.

This is where Jed and Granny Lived.....
