While we don’t get a lot of snow in the Lake Norman area, the mountains are only 90 miles away so if you miss the white stuff it is not too far from here. There is something special about the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains. When you find a vista point like this one it seems as if the mountains go on forever. They are such an easy drive either in the summer to find cooler weather and gorgeous mountain hiking, cycling and rafting or in the winter where we do have several ski resorts. (Or, in the fall to see the spectacular autumn colors!)
This gorgeous photo taken by renowned artist Cotton Ketchie, owner of Mooresville’s Landmark Galleries, who spends much of his time driving all over North Carolina and even summer trips around the country, taking stunning photos like this one. If you haven’t visited his store on Main Street in Historic Downtown Mooresville you should put it on your list for 2013!
