Favorite # ONE
Vacation Day #3
which happened on Friday, October 27th!
This wonderful day began with a waterfall.
I Love Waterfalls!
*Waterfalls in this publication and other waterfalls in this blog can be reviewed at RomanticAshville.com (an Insider’s Guide to the NC Mountains).
If you missed my Waterfalls and Walking Trails post, this post may seem uneventful. Go back and read it, as you have missed a monumental moment in my life and great information should you plan a trip to the Mountains.
We left our Hampton in Franklin, NC and set our GPS for Highlands, NC.
Along the way we found a location that has been named “Bust Your Butt Falls“. LB pulled over so we could investigate.
I had to change into my boots to be able to make the climb down. We have enjoyed a lot of physical activity on this vacation. Luckily I didn’t bust anything. After we had taken multiple photos at this location, we continued our drive to Highlands. But along the way, there was another… WATERFALL to experience.
We almost passed it by, but at the last minute decided to stop.This waterfall is named Dry Falls
Vacation Day #3 was a great day!
What an exciting find for us, as we had never heard of Dry Falls. Dry Falls, also known as Upper Cullasaja Falls, is a 65-foot waterfall located in the Nantahala National Forest, northwest of Highlands, North Carolina (source). After enjoying the beauty of nature, LB and I headed on toward Highlands. Highlands is a town within the Nantahala National Forest. LB pointed out an interesting fact, Highlands is 4,118 feet above sea level. This brings me to
Favorite # TWO
Colonial Mustard’s.It is a gourmet grocery store located at 341 Main St, Highlands, NC 28741. This is a small shop with A WHOLE LOT of jellies, jams, spreads, dips, etc. that have been set out to sample on pretzels, animal crackers, and wheat thins. Because there is a sign at the door stating children under 13 are not permitted, the result has been some negative reviews online. If you spend some time in the shop, this request will make sense.
At Colonial Mustard’s, LB and I sample almost everything, and pay for it with our purchases. We have a great time wandering through Colonial Mustard’s. Even with all the boutiques to peruse, this shop is by far our favorite.
