Exploring Kathiey's World...Moses Cone and Bass Lake, NC Mountians

Joe and I love the mountains.  We have been countless times and usually end up in the same place...The town of Blowing Rock and its surrounding parks and trails.  We went earlier this year trying to plan our visit around the beautiful Rhododendrons that grow wild and are a glorious site if you see them at their peak.  That being said we did not see many in the wild but did see some lovely ones in town:-)   Here a few pictures from our visit....
Whenever we are in Blowing Rock we take off for Bass Lake for our morning run.  I usually jog around the lake once and then walk around taking pictures of what ever I come across while Joe runs up the mountain to the Moses Cone house and then runs back down to meet me by the lake....good times! Here are a few pics from my walk....(Have you ever been chased by a large goose? I have, and it is not fun. Lucky for me this gigantic goose was friendly or at least tolerant:-)































Here comes Joe, time to head back to the hotel for showers...Then off on a hike...
Here we are at the top of the mountain....





We decided to try a new trail, new for us, that started a short walk from the Moses Cone House. 








 Met some new friends along the way...

























Another beautiful day in the mountains of NC.  Can't wait to return
 Get out and explore...
Enjoy Your World:-)
