The Blowing Rock......
I had to drive down the mountain for a doctor's appointment in Hickory today. On my way back up i on the spur of the moment decided to stop by The Blowing Rock. What is The Blowing Rock (the town it's located in is also called Blowing Rock) you ask?
|The Blowing Rock|
|The view is simply gorgeous! Notice the Mountains really do look blue from a distance hence the name The Blue Ridge Mountains!|
|I loved this picture the trees make a little heart shape around the view|
I actually live about and hour and a fifteen minutes from Blowing Rock. Sometimes i take for granted the beauty of the area and all the little tourist attractions.
|I loved the little cottage looking gift shop. It looks very old i wonder if it was built in the 30's thru the Works Progress Administration back in the 1930's that help build The Blue Ridge Parkway allot of other buildings along the park way were built in a similar rock style.|
|The building was so beautiful!|
|This was the out towards the garden! loving the stone, the very french looking windows, and that shade of blue. It would make a beautiful home.|
|This was in the gift shop. It made me laugh, i guess this is supposed to symbolize a "Hillbilly" a patched hat, corn cob pipe, and American flag.|
|A box or corn cob pipes at a whopping $5.98 a piece!|
