Doubling back to North Carolina

I’m  back in North Carolina for a few days before heading to my winter roost in South Louisiana. My long time friend and host Amanda suggested we finally go on the hike we planned over 12 years ago. Just couldn’t pass that up, so back there I went!  We headed out from her place in Landis for the Stone Mountain state park in the NW corner of North Carolina. It was a gorgeous weekend in the forecast with clear days and cold nights.

Our night was booked with the Harvest Host at the MenaRick Winery not far from the State Park. Thanks Rick for the wine tasting and the great fire side chat!

On the way back we stopped in Catawba NC at Murray’s Mill, it’s  a local historic landmark. Lots of families were taking their Christmas card pictures to capture the fall colors.

Thank you Amanda for your friendship over the last decade+ , I promise to get back much sooner the next time. I’ll continue staying in touch until then.🌹

The van now has over 44,000 miles and this is my route since the last June. (Some of this was done by the bike also)  It’s  been a great vanlife so far! I can’t stress enough to get out and make your own Adventure!!!
