Happy Mother’s Day

We are staying at Campfire RV park near Asheville and this place definitely has an “it” factor!  Check in time is 3:00 pm and not before!  We arrive about 3 pm not even thinking it was that big of a deal until we entered the driveway and realized that this is the only way in or out and 2 RV’s would not fit easily!  The driveway is a gravel road about 1 1/2 miles long mostly uphill and with several switchback type turns, but when you arrive you know why people follow the rules and pay the price of $40 a night!  This place sits atop a mountain ridge and the view is spectacular.  With only 20 sites it is very quiet and beautiful.

It is beautiful here although we are not spending much time as we are out touring again.  Today we went to Chimney Rock State Park to hike again!  More waterfalls and more stairs to spectacular views!  When you climb to the top you have the most amazing view of lure lake which is where Patrick Swayze taught Frances ‘Baby’ dance.  Remember “Dirty Dancing”?  It was filmed here and in Virginia.

One hike was not enough for this Mom so we also hike the 1.5 mile hike to Hickory Nut Falls, a 400 foot water fall in Chimney Rock SP.  We were able to get up close to this falls and could feel the spray!

Mother’s Day was beautiful, the only thing that would have made it better would be if my girls could have been with me.  Hope all my mom friends had a beautiful day.
