Snowbird....

…. I drove The Missus and her Brother across the Cherahala Skyway yesterday afternoon, and boys and girls, it was amazing….. our high point was 5,235 feet and the views were incredible….. we snapped quite a few photos of the journey and I will post them later tonight… so for now, y’all will just have to take my word for it…. the eastern slope of the Appalachians was a sight to see….

… after 45 or so miles, we dropped down into the hamlet of Robbinsville, NC and stopped at The Snowbird Mountain Lodge for an adult beverage…. We decided right then and there that we’re heading back to the Snowbird to spend the night on Monday…. Hey, any bar that can claim to have a 150 year old Grand Marnier is definitely a place where I would feel at home…..

… as for right now, I’m off in search of lunch for myself and The Brother in Law…. I will be back later with photos of yesterday’s trip…. so watch this space….

There's a place in Oregon called The Weasku Inn that looks almost exactly like the Snowbird Lodge. The two are so similar it's almost freaky....I had a moment of deja vu while looking at the website. The only thing different that I can see is that the Weasku doesn't have a bar (what were they thinking!?)

Anyway, I'm envious that you get to stay there! If it's anything like the place in Oregon, it will be fabulous!!

Can't say as I've ever been to/thru Robbinsville. Sounds like a west coast Carolina town to me, but, watch our for those tarheels brother... If they're claimin' 150 y.o. liquor... You better double check the date, tarheels don't like the metric system and they very well could be off a decimal point... ;)

Darn, you made me come off my RSS reader in search of pics and there were none. Thank Goodness that you have at least a website to look at so all my effort is not lost. [yeah, I'm a bit lazy today 'cause my knee's predicting the weather quite well.

Now that lodge/inn seems like a wonderful place to live, forget about visiting.

Guys, guys... Eric can't post pictures, lest French-Canadian trappers begin hunting him for his luxurious pelt.
