Just Hangin’

Yesterday was vacation for some and a day off work for others so we went to Hanging Rock State Park.  This North Carolina park features five waterfalls (of which we saw four) and is named for the geological formation pictured here, Hanging Rock.  After a mile and a half hike we found ourselves on top of the world able to see for miles around.   The day was perfect, a comfortable 80 degrees with low humidity.  Visibility was great.   To our south we spotted the Badin Lake power plant, the Greensboro and Winston-Salem skylines and to the north we saw Grandfather Mountain, anchoring the highest (5600-6600 ft)  mountain range in NC.

Hanging Rock was a short trip into a spectacularly beautiful setting for fellowship, picnicing and learning about our fellow believers in Christ.  Here are some more pictures to enjoy.IMG_5324 BiBi and Christina on Hanging Rock
