If you haven’t noticed by now – hiking is my favorite past time and Charlotte being near the mountains is one of the main reasons I moved here. I mean – I moved here 7-years ago and the first thing I did was join a hiking group.
Anyhoo – to escape the heat of Charlotte me and my hiking buddy Kelli decided to spend the weekend on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
There are tons of different places to hike here in the Carolinas but I picked this one stretch of the BRP because it’s higher elevation which means cooler.
Kelli, Buddy and I hiked part of the Tanawha Trail on Saturday – nearly 6-miles and pretty tough. It was a lot of maneuvering over rocks and boulders. I found the trail through my new book I purchased called Best Hikes with Dogs in North Carolina. GREAT book! Then on Sunday we did a short 2.5 mile loop call the Green Knob Trail around Julian Price Lake Park and it was awesome. We hiked through the forest but also a pasture!
Well, that’s it for now – countdown to the Fourth of July is on but until then enjoy the pictures!
