Journey Through North Carolina – Part 12 ~ By Tom and Audrey ~

Hello and welcome to part 12 of our journey through North Carolina.

As we continued along the Blue Ridge Parkway we discovered Linville Falls. These falls flow from high on the steep slopes of Grandfather Mountain  in the Appalachians and cascade some 2,000 feet into the gorge below. The Cherokee knew this river as “Eeseeoh” or “river of cliffs” and as we hiked along we could see why it was called this.

Well this is it for today.  We hope you come back and see how the trip unfolds as we share more of USA Through Our Eyes.  Until then be safe.

      Thank you Charu. The sites at this place were wonderful. As we hiked up the mountain each step revealed more. It is so great to hear your thoughts about our journey. Be safe.

      Hi Karen. This is so thoughtful of you to do and what an honor to be considered by someone like yourself that is so accomplished. At this time though we humbly ask your forgiveness for not accepting the nomination. We feel so good about just being connected with so many great bloggers and for us just the mere fact of individuals coming to our site and not just hitting the like button but actually make time to leave comments. This is award enough. We hope you understand?

    North Carolina is such a gorgeous state. You commented that you could have remained for days and my immediate thought was how amazing it is to me that you ever leave *any* of these beautiful places.

    I am so grateful you shared your photos of Linville Falls and Grandfather Mountain (and the video with the soothing sound of rushing water) — and I can almost smell the air. WHAT a great break and an opportunity to get into alignment with nature even though I am still in my office. Thank you.

      Thank you so much for your kindness Ann. It was such a beautiful place. It was both relaxing yet invigorating. We too could just see the Cherokee going about their lives in the area.

      This is so kind of you Peter. We must humbly decline though with hope you understand. To us the greatest award is having individuals like yourself that make time to come to our site on a regular basis and share with us their thoughts. In so doing we form relationships that are of the greatest reward.

      Great question. The trails were beautifully groomed with a moderate grade. It seemed as we continued to ascend the views became even more incredible. There was no way our photos could do it justice. The fun part was initially we were right there feeling the rush of water then as we climbed we could zoom out and see where it was coming from. You’ll love it when that times comes for you to visit it.

      Dawn you have given us the greatest gift that one could ever hope to hear this side of heaven. Knowing you are along with us and we can share each others journeys is right along side of that greatest gift. As we learn more of you and your journeys it is exciting to see the paths we are taking and how they link together.
