Blue Ridge Mountains, October 2012
On a chilly and damp day 5 friends took to the road with one loyal husband as navigator. After a cozy night in the cottage the rain ended, the sun came out and we took the first of several hikes. Highlighs were visits to Penland School of Crafts, Woody’s Chair Shop in Spruce Pine, and a lovely waterfall. For hiking pictures see my album on Facebook.
We even discovered a magnificent orange mushroom grouping called Chicken of the Woods, pictures by Birgit Pauli-Haack. Learn all about this amazing mushroom: video
