Pilot Mountain

For our anniversary we took a trip to Pilot Mountain.  This mountain is only a 20 minute ride up the interstate from us, yet I hadn’t been to it since I was 12!
 We stood on the lookout balcony which is on the small ridge to the left, and then we hiked around the big pinnacle. The last time I had hiked around the pinnacle was when I was about four, and I fell off the path and started siding down the steep side of the mountain! My Dad jumped down after me and saved me. I still have the vivid memory of us sliding down the side of the mountain together before he pulled us both back up.

I’m happy to say I made it around this time without nearly falling to my death!

In the hazy distance you can see the outline of my city, I thought this was too cool!!

You can just barely make out the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.
It was a really fun little trip, we will definitely have to visit this place more often!
