A 10 hour drive from Florida to North Carolina, 'hoping to see the blooms of spring. NOT! We arrived at our 'campsite' in Highlands to see the trees bare of leaf except the evergreens. Winter still leaves her chill in the air. Just a few days ago, there was a terrible storm with 80 miles per hour winds and left homes without power for several hours. Much of the plants (such as pansies) that were tenderly put in the 'spring' ground lay helpless and withered from the change in weather.
Still, life is good up here! The mind starts to relax. The realization of 'vacation' days begin to fill the spirit. Today, the big event was to take a short trip through one of the many, many trails in this part of the USA. Though trees were bare, the moss, the woods gave to us their special presentation. Every season up here changes it's colors, it's temperatures and vistas to provide a special treat for you.
