Cashiers Mountain Sunday

By

Another beautiful day in paradise. The flora and fona have finally returned to 4000 feet. Spring is in full bloom!

Living in Cashiers is the most relaxed life. People are friendly, if you even choose to see people. The lack of crowds is definitely one of the big pluses of mountain life. Today I've seen two people but only because I made it a point. I walked down to a 300 foot waterfall originating in Panthertown Valley National Forest. The fall is named "Continental Falls" and it joins up with Little Hogback Creek. The tranquil sound of the water cascading down the rocks is truly a favaroite moment. I enjoy the peace and quite here on a Sunday. The only disturbance are the chirping birds, which I also like to here. I think a drive over to the face of Bald Rock is in order. Bald Rock is at 4100 feet in elevation and gives you the opportunity to capture panaramic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. I spend a lot of time in the Divide at Bald Rock which is a 250 acre tract of land that borders 6000 acres of national forest. The lots at the Divide average 4 acres in size, so privacy is not an issue. There is an enclave of lots at the top called Panther Ridge. It's amazing! Big views stretching for miles and miles. You can see the Blue Ridge Parkway all the way around to Lake Keowee in South Carolina. One of the things that sets this area apart from other developments is that you look back into acres and acres of national forest as oppossed to homes. It really gives you a sense of "Wilderness".

Jeff,

I've been to Cashiers.  My best friend from high school (California) sold his home in Los Angeles and moved lock, stock and barrel to Cashiers.  You may know him.  He runs the website www.middleofnowhere.com.  He bought the old fire station and he and his wife run a French antiques business out of it.  He is a computer artist who also does website designs.  He composes music and makes visual music videos.  He plays keyboards in the rock and roll/country band HURRICANE CREEK.  He also does videos for real estate agents.  Check him out and tell him I said hello.

Jon,

Sorry for the delayed response. I love the band Hurricane Creek. They play at my friends restaurant, the Library, from time to time. Always a good time. I will look him up and tell him you said hello. It's interesting that you made this comment, I'm looking for a video guy. Thanks
