Said goodbye to Mom and Dad. Headed up to Beech Mt. to spend the rest of the week with Steve’s parents. It was about a 2 1/2 hour ride Northwest. We stopped to eat in a little local place, very good breakfast at 11:30! We were looking for Waffle House to give the kids an “experience” but couldn’t find one. The shame not to find Waffle House in NC!!
Our first day on the mountain, we went for a hike. I was foolish to believe my mother-in-law that it was a short hike! We hiked to the top of Ski Beech ski resort! 5506 elevation. Highest point east of the Rocky Mountains! Yup. That was our “short” hike the first day. I will say that the view was amazing but as you will see, Sarah had to be carried often. Enjoy!
