A Hiking We Will Go

Last week Uncle Jeffy, Ry Guy and I went to the mountains while the college kid stayed home. Although we live in a beach town, the mountains are my happy place and bring me much peace. I mean just look at that view outside our window. For me, that is instant calm. One of our favorite activities is hiking. Thought y'all might enjoy some gorgeous scenery, as well as some funny things we saw on our hike at Stone Mountain, NC.
Duly noted!
The awesome water fall.
Let's hope Kevin and Jessica just broke up, instead of Jessica being one of the aforementioned fatalities.
Love the light shining on Ry Guy in this pic.
Now that's a stone on a mountain baby!
Somebody forgot somethin' and that striped pair has seen better days!

    1. I'm so fit I had to take a break about every 15 minutes. Yes, Uncle Jeffy deserved that throne!

  2. I've never been there. Need to put it on my list. I'm more of a mountain person as well.

    1. It's a great place to hike but nothing else really to do around there.

    1. The waterfall trail is definitely the easy hike but it's the prettiest by far.

  4. There's nothing quite like experiencing the beauty and tranquility of nature, getting away from the human race for just a moment to experience some alone time with mother earth, and then finding someone's skidmarked underwear left hanging on a tree. It serves to remind us that no matter how far you go from the city, shitty people will always be there. Literally.

    1. That is a good theory Pat. It ties everything together very nicely.

  6. The 200 ft fall sign is a little funny. You'd think they wouldn't even let people hike around such a danger. I know at Chimney rock, all the edges are gated so you can't fall off.

    1. I suppose it all comes down to liability. You HAVE been warned. There is a fence all the way down the waterfall so you would have to hop the fence to fall off. I guess people have done that. YIKES!!!

  7. That looks like so much fun!! The scenary is gorgeous, and yes, let's hope they just broke up. lol

    1. Taking the time to go back out there and scratch out her name just cracks me up!

  8. The water fall is cool. Here, it would just be a fall, though.

  9. Wouldn't people be able to see that it is a 200ft drop?

  10. Looks like you had a great time. I'm a mountain person over the beach. Mrs. Penwasser prefers the beach. Makes for great separate vacations.
    Just kidding.
    Although...

    1. Separate vacations is a great idea. Come back all refreshed and better together.

  11. Looks like a great time! I especially love that you get away from civilization. 'Cause sometimes we need to keep our distance from other humans :)

    1. Awe thank you. Waking downhill to the water fall wasn't bad, but I didn't feel so fit walking back all uphill.
