Trail/Park Description:
It was nice to get a break from the deluge we have gone through much of this year, so in celebration we headed for Chimney Rock, one of our favorite. It was a little early for our visit here, as we usually save it for hotter weather, but no one had any regrets as this amazing world class scenery unfolded before us.
For all that rain, the gain is in prolific flower production which I don't think is at it's peak even now.
