Mountain Vacation

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Last February, right before* we made our big move to Virginia, Chris took me on a surprise Valentine's Day weekend trip.  We stayed in a cabin close to Asheville, NC and the Blue Ridge mountains. The cabin was located in a very seclude & remote place, and by remote I mean, a non state maintained road, that prohibited regular cars and advised you to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle to master the terrain.  Just getting up the mountain was an adventure.
But we had a fabulous time lounging by the fireplace, relaxing in the hot tub, hiking to see waterfalls, and eating way too much comfort food.
Don't you just love the "No Rock Climbing allowed" sign, with people climbing all up and down the rocks. Classic.  And yes, that is my husband sitting right next to the waterfall, talk about an adrenaline junkie.  Sometimes I think his sole purpose in life is to scare the ever living crap out of me. 

But I was so proud of my Lucy girl, she hiked all day with us; rock climbing, river jumping, & waterfall exploring.  Seriously, look at her legs, she had to be tired.

Unfortunately the Blue Ridge Parkway, which I have never been on, was closed due to icy conditions.  But that just means Chris has to take me back some day!  So with the cooler temperatures, snow in most places other than VB,  and just the general desire to travel & explore I am desperaltly hoping my hunny has something up his sleeve for this Valenties Day.  A new tradition maybe?  Well a girl can dream right?!

*like the weekend before we moved. Yes, we are crazy!
