I love the mountains here in NC and when I spent so much time out there for oxygen treatments for Liam, I absolutely fell in love with everything on the western side. When the kids would visit me at Miracle Mountain, we would go hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Waterfalls, vistas, and nature galore. After having spent 7 weeks at the northern part of the parkway, I wanted to see a bit of the southern portion.
We decided on the Asheville area and spent 3 days trekking through hiking trails along the BRP and in state parks.
We had such a good time. We should have stayed longer. The fall colors were already gorgeous and at their peak.
And Liam was such a trooper.
We spent one entire day hiking all the trails at Chimney Rock State Park. I've always wanted to go there since seeing it in The Last of the Mohicans. It is simply beautiful up there.
