Over the weekend a good friend of mine came up to the mountains from Chapel Hill.

To find out more information about hiking the Rough Ridge Trail, check out Explore Boone Area’s article on Rough Ridge. Next time you’re up in Boone or Blowing Rock be sure to give this trail a try!

One of the great things about Boone, NC is the weather. Living here you get to enjoy all 4 distinct seasons. I took these photos yesterday afternoon within 30 minutes of each other, only 15 miles apart. The key is the elevation change. With Boone being around 3300 ft elevation, Wilkesboro drops off sharply coming in at roughly 1000 ft elevation. It’s amazing how different the weather can be off the mountain! So this summer when it’s scorching in the piedmont come on up to the High Country and enjoy the cool mountain weather of Boone, NC!

Yesterday we got a chance to get out of the office for a day to look at a few listings. Our 2nd stop was in Matney, NC which is a small community nestled in between Boone and Banner Elk.

Here we are at Sharon’s farm in Virginia cutting firewood to get ready for old man winter. It’s fun to get outside in the elements and work on the farm. Fresh air, hard work and something to show for it at the end of the day! We cut and split a few cords of wood for my new wood stove insert. I’m installing the insert in my house on Fox Den Rd in Blowing Rock, NC. I looking forward to saving some money on propane this year!
