This weekend, Lilli and I drove to Boone, NC to visit friends at App State! The drive was long and the ride to the trail was cramped, but it was worth it. We went to Rough Ridge, a trail off of the parkway. This picture is of a shortcut we found.
This trail also was the spot where the boy asked me to be his girl :) THIS CARVING IS STILL THERE! After almost three months!
This is the boy I’m talking about.
And this is the rock where he asked.
ANYWAYS, it rained the whole time we hiked but we got some cool, foggy pictures.
That’s my roomie.
The guy in the middle is the guy I’ve known since freshman year and he’s just super cool. I met the other two losers the day of the hike.
This is my roomie again. I look like a giant compared to her, but that’s because I am one. She’s 5’2″ on a good day and I’m almost 6′. So.
Today we went to the NC Arboretum and our group was asked to re-do a trail.
First, we divided into two teams: raking the mulch and moving it back and forth.
I pushed wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow down the trail…
…but with so many people it only took about 25 minutes…
…to finish the Bent Creek Trail! Unfortunately as we were starting on a new section, I stepped on a yellow jacket hive and got stung about 5 or 6 times. We were swarmed! A trip to the Health Center at UNCA was necessary and I was super loopy because I took Benadryl when we decided to go to lunch.
Biscuit Head is a cute little restaurant outside of campus…
…that serves biscuits that are literally the size of a small child’s head. Or a cat’s head.
Here we all are!
I thought that the Bee Charmer shop was ironic, especially because when I walked by I was limping and my whole leg was pulsing from the stings of BEES.
