Day Trip to the Mountains

A few weeks ago we took Barb's niece up to the NC mountains.  She's going to job training up there.  Since she had to be up there on a Tuesday, we just made a day trip of it. 

We left after taking Barb's son to school and the trip took a little over 4 hours each way.  It was the first time Alli had ever been to the mountains, I think.  She thought it was beautiful.

Luckily it was a nice day in the 50's.  At least until we got to the top of the mountain.  Up there it was only 37 degrees.  It felt pretty good, though to me.

I love the creeks up in the mountains.  They are so beautiful!  The geese and the ducks thought so too.  They were enjoying the chilly water.

The views from the top of the mountain were gorgeous. 

It had been quite a while since I'd been up there.  We saw a little snow and icicles on the sides of the mountain.  So pretty!

We had a really fun girl's day trip!
