Adventures in Boone: Downtown Blowing Rock

This past weekend Chris and I took the long awaited trip to Boone, NC. Chris was sooooo excited to ski/snowboard and to see his old App State stomping grounds. The mountains were surprisingly warm on Friday, but offered us a bounty of beautiful views and frighteningly curvy, rolling roads. We left at the crack of dawn on Friday morning, and arrived in Boone by 8am with a full day ahead of us. After a nostalgic stop at "Expresso News" for a long coveted cup of coffee, Chris and had breakfast, hit the Tanner outlets, and toured the beautiful downtown Blowing Rock. Downtown Blowing Rock is such a cute area, and has tons of adorable little shops. Here are some pics from our morning there.
We stoped by a little park before heading to the ski; the bottom picture is of me jumping down from the colorful rock wall, Chris is so proud of his action shot!

Ski pics to come :)
