Boone, from wondrous forests with rustling leaves to lush rolling hills, adventure, is waiting; in the vast, natural trails. A quick ride to the awe-inspiring Blue Ridge Parkway in the fall foilage and adventurous ski slopes are waiting. Boone is a beautiful expedition, hidden, lurking across a mountain chain, yet Blowing Rock is only 20 minutes away. However, in all my travels Boone is the only other place, besides home, where I feel completely comfortable. Boone is the sacred place where life is flawless, my family surrounds me, sickness seems to disappear, disappointment never occurs, and at that moment, time appears to freeze in perfection- true blessedness.
