A Weekend in Brevard, NC


Hey guys I'm back with another post. So if you didn't know already my family went to the mountains over the weekend specifically in Brevard. Brevard is such a charming small town in the mountains, and it's stunning there! Brevard is also known for their white squirrels that are present only in that area. I didn't see any there though, but there's always next time. I'm such a mountain girl and I would love to live up in the mountains one day, and I definitely want to go to school in the mountains after I do community college in my area. I'm planning on Wake Tech, and then I want to transfer to Appalachian State, or Western Carolina. But anyways back to talking about mountains, it was so lovely there, and it was nice to relax a little bit and enjoy the fall vibes.


Day one:
We drove up on a Friday so then we could get a lot of time out of the weekend, and one day of not being in school can't hurt. I got a lot of my school work done on the drive up to the mountains, and once we got up to Brevard we settled in. We actually stayed at a log cabin that had lots of land and our own private pond. My brother and my dad were disappointed about the pond through because the guy who owns the land told us that there was trout in that pond, but there was not. So that, and a non working coffee maker were the only issues of the place, but the rest was great. So once we were all settled into the cabin me and my mom went out to Ingles to pick up some lunch, and some groceries. Then after that we just chilled at the cabin, and enjoy all the lovely scenery.




Day two:
We decided to visit Gorges National Park because they had two waterfalls there, and it was good hiking. It was absolutely stunning there, and it was the first time I saw an actual waterfall. So it was pretty great, and we got some good exercise from the hike. This is kind of off topic but you know what's awesome about traveling is you see different culture, and all kinds of cool things. Going to the mountains is awesome because everyone is so nice up there, and I love how there are a lot of outdoors kind of things. It's just different then where I live, and I really like it. But anyways back on topic-after we went to Gorges national park we headed back to the cabin to relax because we were all tired from the hike. I layed down in the eno for a bit, and worked on my history unit sheet. I also got some blog work done, so i felt pretty productive for being on holiday.





Day three:
We woke up and headed into town before we started the ride home. Me and my mom went into the White Squirrel Shoppe, and I picked up a cute mug that has the iconic white squirrel on it, and two stickers that say Brevard on it. Then we started the long ride home. So I'm a real person, and I'll always give you guys the real side of me, so we got stuck on the freeway for an hour and a half because someone got in an accident and they closed the freeway. So we, and a lot of other people were stuck parked on the freeway waiting for the accident to be moved. It was annoying, but we made it home nicely after we started moving again.






I really enjoyed the mountains a lot, and I would defiantly recommend staying in Brevard because it's really nice if you like a small town kind of vibe. Anyways I'll see you guys on Tuesday with another post.

  5. Yes there is something special about the mountains, I had friends that lived Upstate and I lived in the PNW for a decade and it is magical. And white squirrels? Wow I grew up with gray squirrels and then the blacks ones appeared but never saw white ones!
