Weekend in the Mountains!

A couple of weeks ago, we rode tripped with DeDe and Pro to the North Carolina mountains to the town of Cashiers.  We stayed at a great house affiliated with the High Hampton Inn.  We checked out the view from the Inn when we arrived to check in.  What gorgeous scenery!  Emmy Cate got her first taste of the mountains and the cool temps.  It was 97 when we left Atlanta, and 65 when we arrived and it was only 3pm!!


View from the High Hampton Inn, the lake and the 8th hole in the distance.

We headed to the house and it was a great rental.  It had a very large covered porch where we hung out most of the time, with a view of the golf course below and mountains as far as you could see.  It poured rain the first afternoon we were there into the evening, but we enjoyed hanging on the deck with a glass of milk wine.

Some pics from around the High Hampton Inn.  There is a mini ropes course playground, a regular playground, a fishing hole, golf course, a tiny petting zoo, and a small “beach” on the lake, which we dipped our toes in but never went swimming.

We drove up to Highlands and went to see “Dry Falls” which is anything but!  It is a gorgeous waterfall that you can walk behind.  Due to all of the natural springs and the spraying rushing water, you get a little wet!

We had a great trip and were sad to come home to scorching temps again!!  EC still talks about the waterfall over a week later!
