I see good places to get stoned. You did?

 

Stoned, as it hitting the actual stones... yes my youngest did that once...  about broke his wrist...  

 

Otherwise... no.

Cool pictures, looks like it was a pretty fun trip, glad you had a good time.

And yes, coming from Blacksburg to Wilmington, it's hot and humid. but I do not miss when those cold winds pick up in the winter...cuts right through you.

Now get back in the gym!

Yeah... I went in Saturday about 10AM and thought I'd see you but didn't.  You went earlier right?  :p

 

We got home Friday just in time to catch the game and I meant to text you but forgot.

 

 

Hope to be going to college there next fall

 

I think my son is actually considering App now that we've been up there.  He's a senior this year.

The mountains of NC are really an amazing place. 

 

It houses one of the few temperate rain forests in the world (in the Transylvania County area). It has high peaks (by east coast standards) with micro-climates above 5,000 feet in elevation as well as in the valleys of the Jocassee Gorge. It has areas that get 100+ inches of snow per year and areas that get ~100 inches of rain per year. It has areas where the average summer time high does not eclipse 80 degrees. There are some really incredible hikes and absolutely stunning drives on the parkway and other mountain roads.

 

There are great unique towns with excellent eateries, tons of breweries, and a lot of wineries.

 

It's my favorite part of the state.

 

I was in Asheville yesterday. In Asheville it was 85ish degrees. I drove up about 10 miles on the parkway and it was 66 degrees, and I was still about 1500-1700 feet below the highest point on the parkway.

 

On any given day in the summer, Mount Mitchell rarely gets out of the 60's and 50's are common.

 

An immense amount of diversity in a fairly small geographic area. We should all consider ourselves fortunate to have such an area so easily accessible.

It never got above 75 at our condo on Sugar Mnt the entire week... it barely got above 85 in Boone.  It was awesome.  At the top of Grandfather at about 2PM it was about 66.

 

 

I went home for lunch here today and it was 96, and we're less than 3 miles from the ocean... I can't imagine what you poor schlubs in the Piedmont feel like... bleh.

I haven't been to the mountains in a while, and I've been wanting to go. More so now with the pics.

How many lines were there on the zip tour? I've done that twice in Mexico and Massachusetts, and wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
