This past weekend marked 2 years of marriage for me to my beautiful wife Laura. We took off to the higher elevations of Banner Elk and Beech Mountain to have a small get away. What a great time it was! Matt and Jeanie Steele allowed us to stay in a house that they have up on the top of Beech Mountain. Thanks Steele Family! We even got a fire going both nights in the fireplace and enjoyed the obvious temperature drop this weekend next to the "cozy" fire as Laura would say.
Saturday we took off to the Blue Ridge Parkway and went hiking. What a beautiful day for a hike. The views were really amazing. I highly suggest hitting the Linn Cove trail if you have the chance sometime on a clear day. I have include a very rough panorama shot from the top that I took. It in no way does it justice, but it does give you an idea of what it was like.
Saturday night, we celebrated at a restaurant in downtown Banner Elk called Louisiana Purchase. The food was great and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. Stop in sometime if you are in the area.
Happy Anniversary Laura... I Love you.
