After a wonderful breakfast, our hosts at Chimney Rock Bed and Breakfast, offered to take us for a drive to see the surrounding landscape and hopefully some wild life. We jumped at the chance. We headed west from the main buildings and were shown some amazing country, spotting some deer and watched several types of water fowl on a nearby pond.
From there, we drove south across the pasture and through the trees.
After climbing up through the trees to our eventual destination at the top of an open ridge the view of the valley, foothills and mountains was definitely an “Oh Wow” moment.
