Under Brown Mountain Lights the Beast of Blandenboro wanders this magical land where lighthouses shine on kingdoms only accessible by ferries. A Lost Colony of legends and pirates revealed in historical sites and majestic mountains with views that make us weep. The home of handmade sculptures and scrumptious cuisine. North Carolina leaves this long-time writer and artist breathless with endless surprises, including the unlikely warmth a winter walk on the beach can bring.
If you seek a new perspective on life, visit Shortoff Mountain Trail, the best hike near Nebo, North Carolina. The moderately challenging 4.5-mile out-and-back trail can be found at the mountain’s base from the Wolfpit parking area, offering unforgettable views of the Linville Gorge Wilderness area. And if you’re into primitive camping, there’s a spot for you in this wooded wonderland.
