Last weekend we woke up and Mum said...'we're getting out of here!" Yeah Mum! You have been working way too hard lately.
So we drove to one of our favorite places to hike, Aska Trails. The drive there was just amazing. Lots of the leaves are turning and makes driving the winding roads around here so breathtaking.
We got to the trail head and decided to take the two mile trail this time. We headed in and saw where some folks had left their walking sticks...just think that is so cool!
After our hike...we decided to take a little trip and head into town. Blue Ridge is a really fun little tourist town with an entire downtown full of all kinds of fun shops. It's Apple Festival time around here and leaf changing time, so it was kind of busy, even though we didn't get there until about 3 PM on Sunday.
Blue Ridge is also a really dog friendly town. We saw lots of dogs on leash, even a booth set up for pet adoptions. Several of the stores Mum wanted to go into allowed us to come in as well. We especially liked stopping into the Blue Ridge Adventure Wear. They stock all of Mum's favorite brands...Columbia, Life is Good, Keen, Teva and more. Mum has worn holes in the bottom of all her hiking socks, so we helped her pick out some new Wigwam Hiking Socks. She can't wait to try them out. Gracie is wonder if they have any liquid image summit series goggles, awwwwww she would look so great in them too, but they didn't :).
Mum says that if the weather holds...we're going to Fort Mountain next weekend. We hear they have lots of vistas to hopefully see lots of leaf color and miles of hiking trails too!
