Road Trip: Pink Beds (Part 1)

This week's day trip took the entire family hiking at the Pink Beds in Pisgah National Forest.

The Pink Beds area is beautiful!  (But, really... what isn't in the mountains of western North Carolina?)  If you enjoy hiking  - or just sight seeing/ picnicking - and find yourself in this part of the country - I highly recommend a visit!

Grand baby thought something smelled funny and wanted everyone to pinch noses and join him in saying "ewwwww"

Much of the area is a mountain bog

There are plenty of foot bridges and walkways to keep your feet dry


Seeing prints like these in the mud remind you this is a wilderness area! That thing was as big or bigger than my hand!
