We had a quick getaway from the hot temps of July 4th to our "Lonely mountains." Named such because they are not part of the larger Appalachian mountain chain a bit further west. The temps were a pleasant 75 degrees compared to the 91 we left behind at home. We had a lovely day enjoying scenic views at Pilot mountain. For those of you who know of the Andy Griffith show way back in the day, the city Mayberry was based on this area, where the residents often traveled to the city of Mt Pilot!
