Fall Mountain Trip (day 2)

On our second day in NC, we got up and ate breakfast, drove to Wal-mart and picked up some deodorant for Kim (she forgot to pack it and would not use Ed's manly smelling stuff!), and then packed up our things to head home. Before we left Chimney Rock though, we stopped and took some photos on the river, and we visited the neatest place called Chimney Rock Gemstone Mine. We basically bought a bucket of dirt and flume mined. The kids had a blast (I loved it too). We got some great stones, which Matthew has been showing to everyone he comes in contact with (almost). After leaving there, we stopped at an apple orchard in Hendersonville. We had so much fun picking our own. We bought half a bushel of Jonagold apples. They are really good. Here are some photos that highlight our final day of the trip.

  1. Next fall, I want to do this with you...I told Hannah I'd take her gemstone hunting (saw it on TV recently!) and I want to pick apples again....
