Hike To The 50-Foot Tall Cove Creek Falls In Brevard, North Carolina

I love North Carolina. But one thing I don't like about it is how confusing and poorly marked some of the hiking trails are and the Cove Creek Falls trail was one of those. The trailhead was easy enough to find but then we hit the trail. We were already 1/1 for following the wrong…

Enjoy The Hike To Roaring Fork Falls Between Boone And Asheville, North Carolina

Once I found the Roaring Fork Falls trail, it was stuck in my head and I was determined to see it. I really don't know why, it wasn't one of the most amazing waterfalls ever, but I just really wanted to go. We planned to do it the same day at Grassy Creek Falls and…

Hike Crabtree Falls Trail: One Of The Best Waterfalls On The Blue Ridge Parkway

Once I saw the Crabtree Falls hike I knew we had to do it. I had a busy day planned for us with Grassy Creek Falls, Crabtree Falls and one more nearby, but we only made it to the first two and this one was so much better! Don't get me wrong, Grassy Creek Falls…

Hike The Linville Falls Trail In The Fall For Out Of This World Color

Linville Falls. The falls I was most looking forward to on our October trip and they let me down. I kept seeing this AMAZING waterfall on every North Carolina waterfall or Boone waterfall list and I just had to see it. Falls cascading into a gorge surrounded by trees flaming orange and yellow. How could…

Hike The Cool And Creepy Glade Creek Trail In New River Gorge National Park

I was pretty excited to visit West Virginia this fall. It was totally new to me and I knew nothing about it before getting there. Turns out, it's pretty good! We really only saw the main sights in New River Gorge but it was enough for me to want to go back and see more…

Fall In Love With West Virginia On The Sandstone Falls Trail In New River Gorge National Park

West Virginia really surprised me. I really knew nothing about West Virginia before going there. Those things were Mothman, a landlocked lighthouse, Hillbilly Elegy (which is actually Ohio and I didn't know that until a couple months later, check out this book, too), and I think that's it. Well, West Virginia knows how to impress.…

Hike The Dreamy Blue Hen Falls Trail In Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Would it even be a national park trip if I planned ahead at all? Cuyahoga Valley was no different and I was a little overwhelmed when it came to knowing what to do. This is a park that definitely needs at least a little planning ahead. Like usual though, we started our trip at the…

Gnomes And Trolls At The Devil’s Punchbowl In Menomonie, Wisconsin

Outside of dear little Menomonie, Wisconsin, there is a place rumored to be the home of fairies, gnomes, and trolls.  That is the Devils Punchbowl, a great place for a short visit any time of year, but this visit was in the winter. I've been to the Punchbowl a few times and always enjoy it. …
