From Crabtree Falls, we continued south on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a few more miles, getting off at NC-80 and heading towards Black Mountain Campground in the Appalachian Ranger District of Pisgah National Forest. We turned off NC-80 onto South Toe River Road and made an immediate left and parked outside the Busick Work Center. Walking past the gate, we got on Roaring Fork Falls Trail (#195), which is also Forest Service Road 5520. It's only about half a mile along the forest road to the falls.

Jul 4, 2009 - Mt. Air, Burnsville, NC

We drove out of the Keys and did a one day turnaround in Melbourne before driving on to North Carolina (10 hours). We left at night and drove straight through which we never do, but it was fine. The fourth of July is always special at Mt. Air. They capture small town America in a special way there. The flying squirrels are back in our bird feeder this year, and our brother in law Fritz was able to get them to eat out of his hand while he was visiting this month. We Enjoyed having Ernie's Mom and Dad along with his sister and Fritz and...
