Cashiers NC Family Vacation, Part 4

On the way home, we stopped in Flat Rock to visit Sky Top Orchard. The name is fitting, to be certain, as we drove straight up the mountain (with our check engine light still on). While most of the apples had already fallen, we were still able to have a great time roaming the orchard and looking at the farm animals. Before we left, we bought lots of Pink Lady apples, freshly baked apple cinnamon doughnuts, and apple pie fudge. What a great way to end our vacation!

Cashiers NC Family Vacation, Part 3

On the last day of vacation, we decided that Nola should try a hike it on her own two feet. Silver Run Falls is a favorite of ours and was perfect for this because it was so close to the cabin and is a short hike. The rest of the day was spent in downtown Cashiers taking in all of the unique consignment shops and gift stores. Nola also had a chance to explore Village Play…a massive playground in the town square. Also below is a shot of Cornucopia which is our favorite place to eat.

Cashiers NC Family Vacation, Part 2

When we went to Highlands in the spring, we passed the Cashiers Farmers Market and both loved how it looked. This time we were able to stop, go in, and enjoy their BBQ and cornbread. Nola loved the carved bears and the owner’s dog that slept on the front porch. Down below, you also see pictures of our second day hiking. We went to Gorges State Park and decided to hike to Rainbow Falls. The first part of the hike was surprisingly easy until, well, it wasn’t. I didn’t think we would ever back to our car. Anyhow, Nola saw several people hiking with sticks, so once she was out of the Kelty, she found herself a hiking stick and I believe would have hiked down the mountain by herself if we would have let her. The following day, we drove up a beautiful mountain to hike Panthertown Valley. This was the most remote hiking spot we visited while on this trip…the parking lot was the shoulder of the gravel road. On the way to this hike, we came across a Christmas Tree farm and some of the trees were already tagged and ready to go.
