You know that ole saying, “You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl”? Yep, it’s true.  I remember the day I was taking that loooonng drive down I-75 with my car packed down.  Windows were halfway down, wind blowing my hair across my face and jamming out to every  burnt CD that I owned.  I remembered driving across the GA/FL line and immediately felt sunkissed.  I was hooked!  It’s pretty crazy to think that was FOUR  years ago!  FOUR yearssss agoooo…  Where has the time gone?

While people come to FL to vacation,  I always head away to NC to escape for a while.  Every now and again, you just need a bit of the south to soothe your SOUL!   I feel like it doesn’t matter what season it is to visit, you will always get a good view.  You will come back feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to tackle whatever comes your way!  Over the summer, I decided to take one of my mini escapes to the GREAT SMOKIES and wanted to share with you some of the hot spots you should check out if you ever decided you just wanted a different kind of view 🙂

IMG_3301  This view is simply breathtaking!  This was in the summer!  I can only image what Fall must look like.  This is Wayah Bald in Franklin, North Carolina.  If you are ever in Franklin, I suggest you take this drive.  The curves and nerves will be worth it.  Promise 🙂

IMG_3310  THIS though.. is simply breathtaking.  Yes, NC has waterfalls and this is just ONE of them.  This is heading into Highlands, North Carolina.  I have to warn you, the roads leading up to this is not your typical straight roads.  I believe they couldn’t decide which way they wanted to go when they designed those roads, HAHA!  Yes, prepare to drive slow and enjoy the view. 

IMG_3312  Do you want to know what this cool place is all about?  Have you ever heard of  Fields Of The Wood Bible Park.  It is located in the heart of Murphy, North Carolina.  I loved this place! 

IMG_3314  You can either Climb the Ten Commandments Mountain or there is a secret road where you can drive to the top and be greeted with a GIANT Bible!

IMG_3316 You can also take a walk in Jesus’ tomb!  I got chill bumps when I walked in.  Enough said…

IMG_3247  This sign to ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA  is always so nice to see.  If you stay on this road, it can lead to many adventures.  What will yours be?!?

No matter where the road that I’m on takes me,  my heart will always be in the GREAT SMOKIES!

Have you ever been to any of the places I’ve mentioned above?  If so, tell me about it 🙂

    We are in NY, and we escape south to get out of the winter. i did have a chance to go to NC on Tuesday for the day for a meeting, and it was gorgeous.. the weather was 80 but not too hot.. i would move in a minute, if my wife allowed it.

    I wish that I knew about this when I lived in NC. I lived along the coast and never got the chance to fall inn love with the mountains of North Carolina.
