NORTH CAROLINA MOUNTAINS.
If you ever visit western North Carolina, make sure you do a waterfall tour. Below is my friend Megan at High Falls.
This is the two of us at Hooker Falls.
A lot of the falls require a short walk/hike to get to the best vantage points but it's completely worth dedicating a day and a few miles of trekking to see even a fraction of what the Appalachians have to offer.
Lake Lure was one of my favorite places to visit. There's not a lot happening during the winter, but thankfully the beauty is not seasonal.
If you have the opportunity to leave downtown Asheville but aren't in the mood for a long car ride, mosey on over to the Grove Park Inn for some wine with a view.
I spent a lot of afternoons here.
**In preparation for my trip to Germany/Austria/Slovenia in April, I'm going to start a temporary travel series that revisits some of my favorite places and photos.**
