I Live in Heaven!

I live in the mountains of North Carolina, known as the High Country. The elevation ranges from 3,000 feet above sea level on up. Driving in my area today, I saw two deer, about 15 wild turkey, a raccoon, a fox, a red tail  hawk and a beaver.  Don't I have great neighbors?  If I'd wanted to see a bear, an otter, a bald eagle or a cougar, I could have driven a few miles to Grandfather Mountain. This place is gorgeous, even on a misty, rainy day like we had today. Told my brokers about the creatures when I got back to the office and we all agreed that we are lucky to live here.Blue Ridge Parkway

You are indeed fortunate to live in Boone.  I own some property in Bakersville and Glen Ayre (the old Glen Ayre Schoolhouse and 5-Oaks Campground) at the base of the Roan Mountain, and I love coming up to the mountains to get away.  Nice pictures.  Go to Localism and see the pictures I put in under Mitchell County and Bakersville.

The pictures you posted are absolutely beautiful.  There are so many beautiful places to visit, and just not enough time to visit them all.  It is nice to at least see the pictures.

Thanks for the post!
