In the 1830’s a Presbyterian minister from Connecticut came to Montreat, North Carolina, establishing a religious center which later became a college. It continues today. Entering the town of Montreat this stone entry is passed through.
There is much natural beauty on this campus. Here is a sampling..
A retreat center building and overlook.
The Nature Center was closed, however, there are signs for trails. I particularly liked the signs for children. Need to start them hiking young..
And check out this playground, nice spot for both parents and children.
Drive through the college grounds..
Past this church the mountain inclines and hiking trails are available for those with moderate skills.
I think I am feeling the need for a retreat. Don’t you?
