Waterfalls – Gragg Prong in Mid-May

BobdeCamara-GraggProng-1

Matt and I took a nice hike this morning down to Gragg Prong Falls down below the Blue Ridge Parkway below Linville.  It was majestic with the sun rising projecting slanting, golden light on the time-smoothed, granite slabs surrounding this water hole.  There’s nothing like spending a morning in the mountains in May!

Wilson Creek – Waterfalls Near Boone, NC

Spring is in the offing in the High Country!  A few days ago I went down to the Edgemont area just below Hwy 221 south of Blowing Rock.  Once you drop down below the escarpment you will find massive creeks and mountain streams flowing all the way down to Lake James.  Here are a few photos of Wilson Creek!

Big Snow in Boone, NC!

Yesterday we had the biggest snow of the season with a range of probably 4-8 inches in the High Country! It’s always a treat to get a big snow and it’s an even bigger treat to go out and play in it! The four seasons are one reason folks like living here and winter is no exception. While it doesn’t look like we’ll get anymore snow this week, the temperature will take a dive and we’ll dip below 0 degrees in the next day or two. Yikes!! This weather is great for the skiing so if you’re thinking about making a trip, come on up this weekend for great conditions and enjoy the most snow of the season!
