Great Home on the New River

I just love this home on the South Fork of the New River in Glendale Springs. What could be more peaceful than sitting by the banks of the Nee River at the onset of spring!

This is where I spent my morning.

Waking up early to get out on the South Fork of the New River is worth it’s weight in gold!  I had such a pleasant morning showing a log cabin to great clients.  It’s days like this that remind me how lucky I am to be living in Boone, NC.

Want to be on the South Fork of the New River?  Check out this log cabin just outside of West Jefferson today!

Cold Morning in Late March

This morning we woke up to several inches of snow and a bitter 16 degrees outside – yikes!  It was such a pretty drive to work that  I had to pull over and freeze my fingers off to take a shot of the New River just for you (my fingers are still frozen!).  Happy Wednesday, folks!

It was a chilly morning out on the South Fork in Ashe County!  Here you see a wide stretch of the New River scattered with big ice chunks floating towards Todd, NC.  Rural Ashe County real estate sure is fine!

The Forsythia is Ready for Spring!

 On the drive to the office this morning I was blindsided by this gorgeous Forsythia hovering above the New River.  It might be a little gloomy out today but the Forsythia is striking!  These fiery bushes are not in bloom for long but while they are it sure is a sensory feast.

Sit back and get ready to take it all in. The New River in Todd, NC is one of the many beautiful locations in the High Country. Thanks for watching 🙂

Biking on Railroad Grade Rd in Todd, NC

Biking on Railroad Grade Road in Todd, NC

It’s looking like great weekend full of sunshine with highs in the upper 70’s!  If you’re looking for something to do that’s fun, active and beautiful I suggest you go biking out in Todd, NC.  If you don’t have a bike or don’t feel like hauling it with, no need to panic  — you can rent bikes in Todd.  Railroad Grade Rd is a popular road to ride because it’s flat and scenic.  Follow the New River for the entire ride and forget about that stressful week at work.  Todd may be a rural community but I assure you there’s plenty to do!  Watch the tubers float by or stop by the Todd General Store for a cold drink and tasty sandwich.

Also, if it gets too hot outside and you need to take a dip in cool, refreshing mountain water, check out our blog post on The Top 10 Swimming Holes around Boone, NC.  Have a great weekend y’all.

Here’s a map so you can see a popular 7 mile (roundtrip) ride.
