Walking a 32-Acre Mountain Top in Banner Elk…

Getting in a great land hike on January 8th!

Getting in a great land hike on January 8th!

One of the things I love most about living in the mountains of Boone, NC is the constant relationship with them.  Living here and representing sellers in their land sales give us constant opportunities for being out in nature and enjoying the beauty of the mountains around Boone.  Yesterday we walked about a mile up a snow-covered road to the pinnacle of this gorgeous tract.  At the tops the views are remarkable.  At age sixty I count myself fortunate to still be able to climb these exquisite blue ridge mountains.  Breathing the fresh mountain air, crossing pure mountain creeks and working hand in hand with my 29-year-old son, Matt all constitute tremendous blessings to me for which I am exceedingly grateful.  Some men need possessions or accomplishments to accouter their sense of fulfillment.  I’ll settle simply for the beauty of the mountains around Boone, NC and the opportunity to walk them every day!

I've been an aficionado of the high country since arriving from Chicago 20 years ago. The beauty blossoms in the contrast! Second only to my affection for the mountains is my enjoyment of sharing their magic with friends.
