A Town Surrounded by Mountains

Black Mountain, North Carolina is actually a dream place I would love to live. There is nothing that I do not like about it. It has the most beautiful energy and some of the nicest people. It just reminds me of a little Norman Rockwell town.

Black Mountain is a town in Buncombe County, North Carolina. It is in the Asheville metro areas and the community was named for the Black Mountain Range. The latitude is 35, 617N and the longitude is 82,321W. The elevation is 2,405 feet above sea level.

Visiting Black Mountain, North Carolina is a fantastic weekend getaway. There is so much to see and do that each time you return, it will always feel like the first time you had been there.

Comfort by Mountains

Black Mountain is completed surrounded by mountains. When you look at the picture above, you will notice the tiny little town is right in the middle of the mountains.

The picture above is one that we took while taking a drive up through the mountains. It was actually a lucky shot for us because the angel was not exactly easy to get too.

For those that love nature, and especially the mountains, you would be able to feel the fantastic energy and the strength that surrounds this town.

One of our favorite things to do is walk up town and visit all of the art stores. The people in town and outside of town are so nice and polite. They actually make you feel apart of them, therefore reminding you of a Norman Rockwell town.


Home of Billy Graham

Montreat, North Carolina is a special mountain cover nestled at the foot of Graybeard Mountain near the Tennessee Valley Divide. Located at the eastern end of Buncombe County and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains.

It is part of the Asheville Metropolitan Statistical Areas. The town is best known for its Presbyterian retreat center, Montreat College and for being the home of evangelist Billy Graham and his late wife Ruth Bell Graham.

The day I took the photo post above, my husband and I were exploring and came across this tiny town. This little town looked secluded and away from everything. We came up on this little bridge and when I we stopped I had to take some photos of the creek. I was an overcasted day with a light drizzle-one of the fondest memories I have from this stop was the way the air smelled. It was a complete wooded area and a lot of of fresh bloomed trees. The air smelled wonderful-but I am a huge fan of loving the way the air smells after a air especially in the spring when all of the trees are blooming.

      Spent 1 week each for about 4 summers as a pre-teen and teenager at the Presbytery's Camp Grier near Old Fort and loved it each time. Also went to Montreat several times and Asheville many times. It is a beautiful area as are all the mountain ranges in NC and the Outer Banks along the coast~ It's hard to beat the Carolina's from the mountains to the sea :)

      It is a great little town for sure. I found the links about the "spooky" side of North Carolina which I felt would be interesting :-) However, I also write a lot of stuff about hauntings, so this would be a good start in my research. Thanks a lot for visiting.
