Sunset at Craggy Gardens Pinnacle

Have you ever traveled somewhere so beautiful that it seemed like you had just stepped into a fairy tale? That was this place for us! No words can describe the feelings we had so hoping the pictures tell the story all the way to the happy ending.

Chestoa View

Although the Blue Ridge Parkway has various visceral views along its winding and whimsical way, the hussle and bussle of the muscle cars and motorcyles racing along this route can make it feel a bit like a fairy tale on fast forward.

Grassy Creek Falls

The stroll down to this waterfall was like taking a walk in the neighborhood. After meandering downhill for about a mile, it was quite surprising to find this grandiose display with about as many tiers of falling water as a wedding cake!

This place was so cozy and welcoming! Checking in was a breeze with Amber (so sweet and gave us some great pointers for waterfalls!) I loved waking up to the view of nature and these beautiful birds chirping. Had a campfire with another traveling family on our last night and had to take a selfie […]

Bird Rock Falls

Although there are three waterfalls at this one location, we spent the little amount of time we had at dusk at the base of bird rocks falls. It was so surreal that it felt like we were in another world. The narrow hiking path and board walk made it feel even more adventurous as we […]

Roadie River Rocks

After a bit of an overwhelming afternoon searching for parking at some of the most popular waterfalls in the Pisgah National Forest, we drove by this wanderful sight and had to turn around to explore it!
