Ferd and I spent a couple days in Blowing Rock, NC. We stayed at the Chetola Resort. It is very pretty, but I would prefer a place with mountain views. The town is small and the main street is full of little shops and great restaurants.
We did a little birding at the Glen Burney Trail.We went to the top of Grandfather Mountain. On the way up, we encountered this big rock on the way up. Much bigger than Blowing Rock.Also, some wild turkeys in the road.
