Greg had some vacation days to use up before the end of the year, so last week we used one of them for a family day trip to Blowing Rock, NC. We were about a week late for the best leaf color, but we still saw some beautiful views.
Normally I like to go on a good sweaty hike to "earn" my views. But with little ones in tow, this commercialized view -the Blowing Rock- is a great option.
We had a fun day going to the park, walking around their cute downtown, and eating treats.
