Barn Quilt in the snow In North Carolina

What is wonderful about living on Lake Norman is not just what an amazing place it is but also how close Lake Norman is to so many other great places like Charleston SC (3.5 hour drive), Atlanta (5.5 hour drive), Washington DC (6 hour drive) and the gorgeous beaches along the coast of North Carolina which are only about 4.5 hours away. However, my favorite getaways are places like Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway which are only 90 miles are quick 1.5 hour drive on I-40.  It isn’t hard to find beautiful country scenes like the one above!

This gorgeous photo was 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. And, of course, he also takes some amazing photos of Lake Norman as well. If you haven’t visited his store on Main Street in Historic Downtown Mooresville you should put it on your list for 2013!

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!)
