Perhaps a non-traditional Christmas Day, but great fun. I got to play tourist guide and suggested we drop in on Brevard, perhaps taking in a waterfall on the way? A truly appealing facet about this part of the country is the abundance of natural spillways. Sure enough, we poked around and targeted Looking Glass Falls in Pisgah National Forest. This falls earns its name due to the outer edges freezing in winter and creating impressive reflections. Although it was winter, balmy temperatures assured we would not witness this feature during our visit.
Nonetheless, a marvelous waterfall you drive right up to. We savored the beauty and then pressed on to Brevard. I’ve previously introduced Brevard in this blog and will not rehash it here. I was glad Laura and Sandy were impressed, however, because virtually everything was shut down on Christmas Day. Of course we needed to eat, so we landed at the local Huddle House, which seemed to be doing remarkable business for a major holiday.
A review of Looking Glass Falls appears below, but I do not think I want to encourage anyone to visit a Huddle House, so no review on that front.
