I’m heading back to this wonder place very soon. Wessy loved the “Orchard,” and she was crazy happy to meet the dogs that call this beautiful farm home. I love it for her because it is pretty much wide-open and she can be with me and still run free some.
These photos were taken in late summer but already we saw asters and other wild flowers that signal the end of warmer weather in the south. Though it will be weeks away, fall was coming and we knew it!
These are home views. Meaning that these are the views that people in this part of North Carolina see everyday. If I could change places to live, western North Carolina would definitely gain my attention.
Finally, Wessy and I reached the top. Whew . . . it was a powerful climb to the top and we went on to go back through a forest that was dense and inviting. ThThis was my favorite spot on the trail—the swing on the trail!
Then it was time to “hike” on! She was actually tired after this one. I was tired and wondered why in the world I decided to do this right before leaving to travel home but it is “hands down” one of the best hikes of 2022!
Pat heading back up to the cabin. Wessy did not realize that I had fallen behind while taking photos of butterflies. So, I had a few moments alone with the camera. Wes is my constant everything. She even wants to help me brush my teeth! LOL!
