We recently left Virginia to visit family in Florida by way of Asheville NC and the Smoky Mountains (east side). While in the mountains we visited Chimney Rock. I have not been there since I was a kid. It’s still quite beautiful. Here are a few photos from that visit.
This view is from our walk up from the parking lot.
We are getting closer to climbing the stairs.
We went up the steps to the top but then decided to go higher to the “opera box”. These steps were a little more rugged than the ones you see in the above photo.
Once up there, this was our reward.
On our way down – I was glad that we wore sensible shoes.
