We spent the early part of the week on a last summer fling. We drove down to North Carolina through the great Smoky Mountains and into North Carolina. The boys of the family even slid down a waterfall. The weather in the mountains was a bit too cool for me but I really enjoyed hiking to several beautiful waterfalls. After entering North Carolina we drove over to the central part of the state know as the Sandhills and got some golf and more swimming in. All in all it was a great trip.
