Hiking in the mountains of NC is not for ‘wimps’! The elevation is high and the trails are rocky and steep! (the mountains are in the clouds today!)
The highest mountain peak that we see from our balcony is Mt. Pisgah. It’s what I take hundreds of photos of….
So we stood on the balcony and took a really good look! We even looked through the binoculars for a better view of the tower….
and then we drove to the parking area at the trail head…
and took off for a hike to the top!
The trail is deceiving at first….
not too bad!
But it gets rougher….
Lots of pretty flowers along the way….
And a few photo ops!
And then you reach the top and see the amazing view!
It’s well worth the hike!
But don’t plan to eat your picnic lunch on top! There are some fierce biting gnats and flies that will eat YOU up if you linger for long!
My youngest son and his sweet family…..(we miss you already!)
Do you like to hike? Should the grandkids set the pace or Nana and Papa? heehee! Enjoy your day…I’m taking the day off! ♥
