Have you ever wondered what your Thanksgiving dinner looks like in transport? We passed this on truck on our drive up:
Since we had little kids, we decided to take the elevator up to the top of Chimney Rock. 26 stories in 35 seconds, all the way up through solid rock! (The other option is 31 flights of stairs. No thanks.)
After we were done taking in the views, we decided to do a short hike to Hickory Nut Falls. The Falls are the second tallest east of the Mississippi, and they were used in the filming of The Last of the Mohicans. Which I have never seen, so I can't vouch for that. Regardless, they were worth the hike.
|I think these two missed each other.|
|London was a trooper, she walked most of the way herself, but I think she was pretty worn out by the end of it all.|

After we finished up at Chimney Rock, we headed over to Asheville for dinner. We drove through the Blue Ridge Parkway on our way over...but we were about a month too late for the leaves. I can imagine how impressive it was during the peak season though. Oh well, maybe next year if we are still around these parts. In Asheville we ate at Moe's Original BBQ. It was awesome! Once we wrapped up dinner, it was getting pretty late, so we had to head home. Thanks so much to the Lukers for letting us tag along on your trip. Let's go again soon and check out Biltmore!! ;)
