On Top of the World

Nature amazes me. I love being surrounded by it. Which obviously explains why I love summer and warm weather. While visiting Asheville, just outside of the city was Chimney Rock. Chimney Rock is a nice hiking spot where you can see the beautiful mountains that North Carolina calls its own. 

North Carolina
The road up, was a bit curvy, but once we reached the parking lot I was already taken back by the beauty of it all. We arrived pretty much as soon as the park opened, which mean the sun wasn’t too hot just yet, and there were hardly any crowds at all! 
The hike up included 1,962 steps round trip. Being hot and sweaty was incredibly worth it as I took in the scenery.

Once we reached our top destination (the flag), we met some really kind people, who took a few family shots. I just loved looking over the valley and admiring how beautiful this world really is. You don’t even have to go that far to find out!

While the trek to the flag was only (lol) 651 steps one way, my sister stayed behind while my mom, step-dad and I climbed to Exclamation Point. It was stunning up there as well. Out of all of our side stops, I think Chimney rock would have to be my favorite.

After we had made our way down the steps, my mom thought it would be a nice treat to have a bit of ice cream and catch our breath before heading back into the truck and onto our next destination (Charleston, four hours away)

The world is so pretty, and I love exploring it! I hope you enjoyed these photos and all of my travelling blogs so far! Let me know if you’d like to see something in particular! If you have ANY questions leave them in the comments, or shoot me an email!
Do you like to hike? Have you ever had your breath taken away by nature before? 
Can’t wait to hear from you!
