Grayhart Southern Adventure continues...

After a fantastic weekend at the Tarheel Weimaraner Club Agility Trial in Sanford, NC, we drove to Sky's owner, Debbie's house, in the Maggie Valley area of North Carolina.  On Monday, we gave the dogs time to rest while KellyAnn and I toured the Biltmore Estate.  It is a magnificent place and we enjoyed touring the house and incredible gardens.

Today, we took the dogs on a fun hike and then drove around Pisgah National Forest in the Smokey Mountains.  Scenic does not describe the natural beauty of this area.

In the morning, we hiked Flat Laurel Trail and then drove to show Kel Graveyard Fields, where Debbie and I hiked last year.  We had a quick packed lunch and drove to the next hike, Devil's Courthouse.

Devil's Courthouse is a high peak, elevation of 5720 feet, with views of many states and other peaks in the Smokey Mountain Range.  It was a steep hike up from the parking area but well worth it.  Of course, it was a perfect spot for a photo op of the girls.  Great exercise for all of us and we can't wait for tomorrow's hike.
