North Carolina is blessed with many beautiful sceneries…from mountains, beaches, falls, lighthouses and historical sights to name a few. On our trip to Grandfather Mountain, we decided to make a side trip to Linville Falls. At first, I thought, the falls will be a few steps from where we parked. Was I in for a surprise! It turned out, we have to hike almost a mile to be able to get a good view of it. To say, I was exhausted was an understatement! But in the end, it was all worth it!
