We live in such a beautiful area with so many special places to discover from waterfalls to mountain tops. Sometimes the sights are very local, or tiny and right under our feet as in the mosses and fungi on the forest floor. The vistas from local heights and the Blue Ridge Parkway never fail to thrill. From the local stroll to the adventure hike, we love to chronicle our outing with photos. Follow along as we explore the beauty of the Carolinas on the Hikes page. And check our YouTube channel; Exploring the Carolinas , for video.
