we don't get trick-or-treaters on halloween because we live on a busy, curvy road that is impossible to walk down. so while we don't have kids to take trick-or-treating, we escape to the mountains for the day. it's nice because it's not super crowded, and there are still lots of pretty leaves on the trees.
it's so nice to get out and enjoy the fresh air and the cool temps that have finally arrived in the south! even though it takes almost the whole day when we venture to the mountains, it's definitely a day well spent! we went on a short hike to Moore Cove Falls which is a waterfall that you can actually walk behind. it's not a super impressive waterfall by any means, but the fact that you can walk behind it Last of the Mohicans style makes it pretty darn cool!
after our hike, we drove up to Black Mountain, NC to go to this cool coffee shop Thomas found called the Dripolator. only to find out that they close early on halloween so our plans were foiled. however, we had fun walking around the small town and seeing all of the kids trick-or-treating at the places that were open! and that just means we will have to visit again when the coffee shop is open!
do you have any out-of-the-norm halloween traditions?
