|On top on the world|
Today, we slept a little late. Our plan today was to go to Chimney Rock. It is about 30 miles away up in the mountains. We noticed that as we got higher into the mountains the leaves had changed more. We love this part of the country because it’s so beautiful and we enjoyed the drive over to Chimney Rock. There is a little town with cute shops in the valley and you drive up into the mountain to get to the state park.
Normally there is an elevator that takes you up to the top of the mountain and it was being renovated. We decided that would probably be our hike. There were lots of stairs, but the view was worth it when we got to the top. A side note: The movie, Last of the Mohicans was filmed in this area.

After that, we went to a place called Discount Shoes. It is a huge warehouse shoe store with any nice brand of shoes you could imagine. Nick found a pair of Clarks that were about $30 less than another store. They have Merrells, Dansko, Clarks, Tevas, Keen and many other brands that I’m not familiar with. If you are ever in this area, I recommend you check this store out.
We had snacked a little since breakfast, but we were getting hungry. Doc Chey’s Noodle House is a restaurant we go to every time we come to Asheville. They use fresh local ingredients and are reasonably priced. There’s usually a crowd, but since we got there around 3:00, we were able to get a seat. I had Thai Red Curry and it was great.
Tonight we visited a very small church. There were 23 and that included us. They were very nice and welcoming. It’s always nice to meet members of the church when we travel. I hate to say it, but I was having trouble keeping my eyes open. We’ve come back to the hotel and we are taking it easy tonight. I’m not exactly sure what we are going to do tomorrow, but we will eventually head home! It’s my Fall Break, so I’m planning on enjoying this beautiful weather and getting some things done around the house!
I hope you are enjoying the pictures!!!
