Cherokee, North Carolina

On the way to Cherokee the Waze AP placed me on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Look what was grazing along the Parkway,,,,, ELK

Aren’t they beautiful??

Better view of these 2 gals, sorry about the lighting..

Cherokee is a fun town with many shops. Stayed in this town as it was close to many sites, however, there are campgrounds, and other venues nearby.


Nice men – bought a lamp at the flea market and discovered no knob to turn it on, guys here found the knob and didn’t even charge the 55 cents..
Great Place – helpful staff, wonderful prices of quality merchandise and more Xmas presents done..

After retail therapy, take a walk on the Oconaluftee River Trail..

Or if energized, a short hike to Mingo Falls, which is 3 miles off Big Cove Road.

200 steps to the top, then .1 mile walk to the Falls. Wear sneakers and stop every 25 like I did.. šŸ™‚

The Falls – worth the hike

Next .. things to do with kids in Cherokee
