A Little Switzerland Adventure: Part II

We started off the second part of our day at the Orchard at Altapass.

This orchard is 102 years old. It’s almost like being in an Italian countryside with loads of apple trees lining the sides of the hills.

Next stop: Linville Falls…which was only another lovely little drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Phew…Long day. Fun day. Ready for bed. Good night sun!

The trees were even in awe of this sky.

I apologize for so many sky photos; they were just so beautiful, I couldn’t help it! 🙂

Next morning: Sunrise.I was the look out for this next photo…good thing there weren’t any speed demons ripping down this winding road at 7:30 in the morning!

And we made our final excursion on the Blue Ridge Parkway on our way to navitat ziplining tours!

Let me just start off by saying I’m afraid of heights…and my heart was pounding out of my chest during the entire 3.5 hours of ziplining. But…

It was SO FUN!!!

I highly recommend going ziplining, especially at navitat. They are VERY into safety and that makes me feel good with putting my life in their hands wires. Enjoy the photos!

And finally, the last stop on our trip:

Mayfel’s, Downtown Asheville, North Carolina.

We’ve managed to dine here 4 times now and this is the first time I’ve taken the time to take photos of the food. It’s always just so good that I don’t even think of pulling out my camera. This time, after ordering, I kept repeating to myself: ‘Take photos, Wait to eat, Take photos…”

I had the black bean burger with sweet potato fries and my dear husband (who apparently wants a heart attack) got the omelet special AND the biscuit and gravy meal…yeah, enough for 4 people. But it was Mmm Mmm good. Love you, honey!

The end.


  1. Little Switzerland and the Blue Ridge Parkway are some of my favorite places!! Your pictures are beautiful and make me want to go back today! Thank you!

  2. My dad and his side of the family live near Asheville, and I’m vegetarian, so you’ve just given me some great suggestions for next time I go visit them! 🙂 Thanks! (It’s way harder to find vegetarian stuff at restaurants down there than it is where I live in Northern VA!)
