Every now and then I get a little dressed up, nothing too fancy mind you. Here I am at dinner Friday night.
Dinner: fillet mignon wrapped in puff pastry, potatoes au gratin and sauteed green beans with sesame seeds. I cleaned my plate!
For dessert: apple tart with homemade vanilla ice cream.
It was a little foggy on our way up to the pinnacle at Roan Mountain but it made for neat pictures.
And here are some of the actual Rhododendron gardens on top of Roan Mountain.
So the hike to Crabtree Falls has a 2 mile loop marked strenuous, so yeah um...that patch of dirt is the trail and the stone border marks the edge of a drop-off.
Saw this guy along the way to the falls...
Lots of rain meant lots of mushrooms.
And lots of rain meant the falls looked spectacular!
And here we are in front of the falls. Please excuse the hat it's lame I know but I'm paranoid about bugs and ticks in my hair.
