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.

90 feels like 96 dew point is 70 and 52% humidity, but that will go up the rest of the day and it will be a nasty wet night....twss

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.

Hawk's Nest has two courses... we did the lower one and it had 12 lines.

 

Afterwards, we all wanted to do the higher one too, but at $75 per person it was a bit too steep.

I paid 90 for 14 lines when in Mass.  It was the same in Puerto Vallarta for 12 lines.  A place down the road wants that same amount to go off platforms across flat land which doesn't sound fun.  Flying down the mountain is part of the fun.

Somehow I let my work convince me that I needed to take a trip to the mountains today.....the mountains of IDAHO !!!!!

 

Who the H*ll gets stuck going to Idaho for work? Me that's who......going to be a looooong week for this city boy but I must say it is rather nice out here scenery wise. When it is 90 degrees and it only feels like 75, that makes it a bit more enjoyable as well.

I read this as "Biscuit Mountain" adventure.  I thought it was a new theme park.

 

Color me disappointed man.  I was wanting pics of the biscuits and gravy flume ride.

Maybe you should start that up instead of teaching... Sounds like a money maker.
