north carolina: Pinehurst-High Point and the beautiful drive! - 11/21/10 02:30 PM
My mother lives in High Point, NC.  I live in Pinehurst, NC…..about a 1½ hour drive.  The normal route is to go up and down on Hwy 220 (I-73 & I-74).  But several times a year I take an alternate route because of the time of the year….Spring and Autumn!  This week as I was headed home from High Point I took that alternate route….down through Archdale, Flint Hill, through Caraway Mountain on into Asheboro.

"A monadnock is an isolated rock hill, knob, ridge, or small mountain that rises abruptly from a gently sloping or virtually level surrounding plain." (Wikipedia)
Come for a visit!

north carolina: Pinehurst to host US Open double-header in 2014 - 06/14/09 01:44 PM
If you are into golf then June of 2014 is the place to be! The USGA has announced plans to hold both the Women's US Open and the Men's US Open back to back weeks...unprecedented!  Since I live in Pinehurst I think it is great!  My only question is when do the women get to play their practice rounds?
