Vacation in North Carolina

Last week, my husband and I had the opportunity to travel to Asheville, North Carolina, for a long weekend in the mountains.

We hiked. We swam. We climbed waterfalls. We drank craft beer. It was a great trip!

Below are some of my favorite pictures from our adventures:

 

I definitely wish we would have had more time: there’s so much to see and do in the mountains and the Asheville area!

One thing we did that I was unable to get pictures of was our visit to Max Patch Mountain. We went at midnight (per the suggestion of a friendly clerk in the local General Store), and, though a spooky trip up the mountain in total darkness, it was worth it; without light pollution, we were able to see every star in the sky. It felt like we were in a Planetarium: the entire sky was lit up, every star twinkling and bright, and you could see the white of the Milky Way in the background. I’ve never seen anything like it.

If you’ve been to Asheville, what’s your favorite landmark?

More importantly …where should we travel to next?

Thanks for visiting!
