We chose Whittier NC as our base for the next 4 days because of its perfect location for day trips in South Smoky Mountains N.P area including the Blue Ridge.
Fort Wilderness C.G is not something to write back home if you get my drift, but the location and the price (20$ for PA members, including full Hook-ups&Wi-Fi) made work for us, especially when we were mostly touring and hiking around.
Rody &Ruth our good friends from Phoenix Arizona joined us at this point with their beautiful new Laredo 36’ 5W,as they wanted to be with us as much as possible before we fly back home they made the trip from Arizona in TWO DAYS…..and arrived around 10PM to the C.G.
Dinner was ready for them and we did some catch up before the hit the sack.
From the next morning it was an ongoing party, fun and good time.
We shared meals, evening entertainment, hikes, scenic drives and enjoyed each other’s company.
One day we took off to visit the small colourful town of Cherokee, with its Indian history and colourful dancer, then drove to Deep Creek and hiked 3 waterfalls all in 4mile loop.
Another day we drove the Blue Ridge Parkway loop stopping at many beautiful lookouts, visiting Mirror Falls and Sliding Rock.
We could stay another week or month in this area and still not see it all but we are moving to the North Entrance of the Smokey’s hopping to see the Autumn colors …..
