So quickly fall has turned in to what feels like winter!  However, the beauty of November is that the sun still warms the days enough to enjoy the lingering crunch of fall leaves and by noon usually jackets come off and a perfect afternoon can be spent outdoors.  With winter around the corner, meaning more days spent indoors, it is crucial for us all to be outside while we still can.  May I suggest a great little hike that, though I have mentioned before, always seems to fit the bill...Lookout Trail in Montreat.  It is quick, strenuous enough to get a little workout and a sweat, and has a rewarding view from the top! 
Check out these great pictures from my photographer and friend JENNIFER HAYNES!

We are so fortunate because there are so many beautiful hikes all around us here in the mountains of Western North Carolina.  Check out this link to the Top 40 Asheville North Carolina Hiking Trails for a great list of some trails to explore this weekend...if it doesn't snow!

Great suggestion and I love the pictures!

Jennifer, the panoramic photo towards the mountains is a true work of art...If you are thinking about making prints to sell I would love to buy a few for xmas gifts

As usual, Great Pics Jen, Great article Heidi! You two make a great team!!!
Remember when we all lived at the bottom of Lookout and could just walk out our door!
