Craven Gap

In sticking with my new year’s resolution to get out and explore Asheville’s beauty more, we went out for a hike today off the Blue Ridge Parkway, on a trail called Craven Gap. It was a beautiful day, and one of the neat things about this trail is the cacti. Yes, cacti. They’re not looking too pretty right now, with it being winter and all, but it was still pretty neat to see them.

It hasn’t snowed in weeks and has been relatively warm, so I was surprised to see these huge icicles hanging from a rock. There were so many – and the sound of the water dripping from them and the occasional one falling off were the only sounds to be heard on the trail.

I just love the little details in nature. Doesn’t this look like a small world within a rock? Makes me think of Horton Hears A Who!
Loved all these tiny little mushrooms – 
Such a beautiful Sunday! Not sure if we’ll be watching the Super Bowl tonight or not, but I know I’ll be knitting no matter what! I’m almost done with one project, and already have a couple more lined up. I’d love to see and hear what you’re knitting on!
