Falling for the Mountains – Foliage Fools Part 2

Well, it seems you have stumbled upon part two of our adventure in the mountains of North Carolina.  Above is the view from the top of Upper Creek Falls, just outside of Linville, NC.  It’s about a mile hike to this site along some moderately steep trails, but we did it with our whole family, kids and all, without too much of a problem and limited whining (mostly from me).  The reward at the bottom was pretty amazing, with the water flowing along this gigantic, lightly rolling granite outcropping which tapers into a 60 foot waterfall – without a rail in site (slightly stressful with a pile of kids anxious to look over the edge).  But with the fall colors in full array, it was certainly a worthy hike!

It seems there was quite the large contingent of chipmunks around the house where we stayed.  This little guy caught my eye – if you notice, his color is considerably lighter than a typical chipmunk.  Scientifically speaking, it probably has something to do with gamma radiation or a radioactive spider.    Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!
