I love the mountains and we are so blessed to be able to take a vacations or even just a jaunt there. Roan Mountain, TN which is on the border of North Carolina is one of my all time favorites! It is a beautiful place and one of the great places to visit in the NC/TN mountains. AND it never ceases to amaze me when I see the beauty of God’s creation. While hiking I love to just stop and look around and take it all in! How can it be, that God, our great creator could love a soul like me! I’m so glad He does!
