Last weekend Mr. T and I went to the mountains of North Carolina to celebrate my brother in law's birthday. It was the perfect weekend to be up there. The air was crisp and cool and the leaves were just starting to change. Friday night was pretty laid back, the boys made chili and we sat around and talked. We got up on Saturday morning and went for a hike to Beacon Ridge.
Later that afternoon we went to Sugar Mountain for their annual Oktoberfest celebration. I must say, this is the closest I've felt to Germany since I was there several years ago. Spaten on draft, bratwurst, big soft pretzels, and people walking around in lederhosen- yes people really wear that stuff over there.

Later that night we made our way to downtown Boone, and stopped into Boone Saloon for drinks before dinner.
two or maybe three pitchers of our favorite beer, Bell's Two Hearted Ale, and headed to dinner. The next day T and I explored a little bit and found some beautiful spots around the mountain house.
What a great way to welcome fall!
