Fall Mountain Trip

Wow! What a weekend! And what a workout my camera got! We decided rather last minute to head up to Chimney Rock and Hendersonville, NC. It is only 3 1/2 to 4 hours from our house, but the area is amazing in the fall! I hadn't been up that way in years, and the fall color was breath taking!

On the first day, we arrived early in the afternoon, and the park closed at 6 PM. So we explored Chimney Rock Park first. We took the 1.5 mile hike to stand below Hickory Nut Falls. The hike there wasn't bad, but the hike back included climbing a multitude of stairs straight up...and let me tell you. I could tell how out of shape I was! My legs were like rubber! It was gorgeous though. These are some of the photos I took the first day. I'll share more from Sunday's excursions tomorrow.
This last photo is one of my personal favorites! (Oh, and you absolutely MUST click on the photo above where Matthew is climbing on the rock beside the green sign. READ the sign! LOL!)

  1. Too funny! Love the sign. Looks like it was beautiful and fun to spend time with your boys.
