My family and I took a little day trip the NC mountains this weekend. I can never resist the cool air and the stunning views. Not to mention loads of stores and stands with handmade items…it is a little piece of heaven for me and luckily it’s a short drive away. Here are some of the views from Blowing Rock. If you haven’t visited, pack a picnic basket and go. There is seriously so much to do in the Boone area and it is just beautiful.
