Since our Dachstein climbing experience, I’ve been itching to go hiking again. Ari and I had planned on heading into the North Carolina mountains awhile ago, but we just hadn’t had the time. This weekend we finally had a chance and picked Chimney Rock. We hit the road semi early to begin our hiking adventure, since it was about 2.5 hr drive!
As we got out of the car, we felt the extreme heat and humidity, 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, but we were able to cool off in the 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?!
