Since our Dachstein climbing experience just a couple of weeks ago, Ive been itching to go hiking again. Ari and I had planned on heading into the North Carolina mountains awhile ago, but life happened and we just hadn’t had the time. This weekend we finally had a chance and picked Chimney Rock. It is about 2 and 1/2 hours from our apartment so we hit the road semi early and began our hiking adventure!
As soon as we got out of our car the humidity and heat hit us, but we trekked along nevertheless. Let me tell you deciding to go hike in 98 degrees is no joke! Ari and I were drenched in sweat before we even got to Hickory Nut Falls, but were able to cool off in the cool mist of the waterfall. We continued our hike and made it to the top of Chimney Rock! (All I could think of at this point, was getting to our air-conditioned car as fast as possible)
Ari and I enjoyed our hike, but will definitely hold off another hike till the temperature goes back down to the 70s.
Any hiking spot recommendations?!
