the second day of my little carolina adventure was one of endless activity. the day began early, as we were headed to transylvania county to do some hiking & waterfall-visiting. we drove about an hour north, crossing the state line into north carolina. being avid bbq-lovers, we stopped along the road at hawg wild bar-b-que in brevard (a really cute little town). after our feast, we began the ascent of a winding road (our ears were popping the whole time) up to caesar's head, where we found breathtaking views & beautiful greenery, although it was a bit foggy.
then, it was on to looking glass falls. i should mention that, by now, we were cruising around in a cool 76 degrees, a welcome change from the humidity-laden 100+ i had been enduring in scorching louisiana. when we got to the falls, we walked down a pathway & some stone steps to reach the base of the waterfall, where countless people were swimming and exploring. the sight of huge cliffs above and cool water below was both refreshing & soothing.
