The Hawthornes Are In Cherokee, NC.

The Hawthornes traveled to Cherokee yesterday and stayed the night. This morning, we decided to take a break from driving and "getting somewhere" and "seeing something" plus its a gray, damp, drizzly day, so we're taking a day off and staying in Cherokee. When the weather moves out, we'll move out. I've been on the Internet to see what's around and I've found a few more waterfalls. The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is nearby and our original "git to" point - Cherohala Skyway, which connects Robbinsville and Tellico Plains, is right down the road. We just want the weather to be nicer before continuing.
I'm very excited about this finding:
Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tour 10345 US Hwy 74 West Bryson City NC 28713 877-398-6222 website

Fly through the trees above the forest floor and across 20 acres on 11 zip line sections that zigzag from slope sides, trees and elevated platforms. In your 3-hour glide and slide experience, you'll also use three sky bridges and five transfer bridges. State-of-the-art equipment is provided including a helmet, full body harness, trolley, gloves and a tether safety line. Professional Canopy Rangers are on hand all along the way. Open all year as weather permits.

I'm signing Mr. Hawthorne up for this STAT!

ETA: I've just booked a yurt for Mr. Hawthorne!

Rosie, Rosie, you know and I know this is just a ruse to go eat at Pauler's. (BTW, isn't she awfully photoshopped these days? Looks awfully thin in the face.) Anyway, let us all know what it's like.
