Mountain Get A Way

Jonathan and I had the opportunity this weekend to spend a night away in the mountains. We stayed in a little red cabin in the NC mountains between Franklin & Highlands. It was a simple cabin but the property and the view were absolutely beautiful! The front porch was full of rocking chairs where you could sit and enjoy the view of the mountains and Christmas tree farms. Near the creek there was a hammock that we enjoyed relaxing in. The leaves have started to change and everywhere you looked were beautiful orange, yellow and red leaves. On Saturday afternoon we drove into Highlands and stopped at two waterfalls on the way. Jonathan and I love waterfalls and like to hike to them whenever we have the chance to go to the mountains. The two we saw were visible from the road but the walks to them didn't look up our speed (down a steep, rocky bank). We just enjoyed taking some pictures this time. The mountains are so breath-taking and peaceful and full of God's glory!The cabin where we stayed.

A view from just up the road of the pretty mountains and Christmas trees!

We didn't have anyone to take a picture of the two of us so we held the camera as far out in front of us as our arms would reach!
Cullasaja Falls
The name of this waterfall is Bust Your Butt Falls. When we went to look at this one some parents were letting their kids climb on the rocks and wade at the bottom. We overheard someone saying that their child fell in. Another person said, "Guess that's why they call it bust your butt falls". Guess you had to be there--but we thought it was pretty funny!
