And so my day started with a 4 a.m. trip to Hickory, North Carolina. Hickory is a lovely little city which sits at the feet of the Blue Ridge mountains. Only one tiny problem I could find with Hickory, NC...the downtown area is a complete and utter nightmare to read on a map in the middle of the freakin' night! Seriously, the city planners used no recognizable logic when naming the streets. There is no downtown grid pattern to the streets which by the way have cute little names like 3rd Ave SW which intersects 3rd St. NE. In any case, my husband and I escaped the Hickory gauntlet without divorcing. Upon returning home at 9 a.m., I could see the snow capped Grandfather Mountain and announced to my husband my intentions of going to get a look-see as soon as I returned home.This is just one of the photos I took looking south from Grandfather today. Maybe more later...I'm really tired and a wee bit grouchy.
