I was even brave enough to go and sit up on the rocks… So now do any of you know the legend of Blowing Rock???? I bet a lot of you do….. It is amazing how the huge rocks look wind swept, like when it snows and Ice storms blow in and the freeze swept like a broom,,, that is how the rocks look here… I wish I could have gotten a lot better photo to show you… but from the one above kind of gives you an idea of how they look…

This is the monument for the story of how blowing rock came to be…. It is a great love story,, and Gunnies book of records has it in there for the only place that the snow falls upside down…. really interesting bit of history for you all….  To make a long story short,, and Indian from an other tribe, fell in love with an Indian Maiden,, when he people told him to come back home,,, he was torn with his duty to his people and the woman he loves… so he jumped of the rock,,,,, she was so upset,,, she went there everyday to pray that he is brought back to her,  and then it happened that the wind blew him back up to her…. They said that if you drop something that is not to heavy that the wind down below will blow it back up to you… I wish I would have thought of doing that… maybe next time I will…. and let you know if it really worked… 

I went and had my long hair cut off today… I was not happy with it any more… It was too long and too heavy to take care of any more,, and with the warmer weather here I was always keeping it up in a pony tail or bun,,, and that gave me such head aches… I just love my new hair cut,, it is up above my shoulders, with some layers… I have a photo to show, so don’t laugh,, I am not wearing any make up…….  I am showing my age…. booo hoooo..

  photo (1) I hate having my picture taken,,, but I wanted to see what you all thought I my new do……  please be kind…… :)  kidding.

Well that is it for this post.. I hope you enjoyed walking with me on Blowing Rock,, I really enjoyed sharing with you….  So until next time; God Bless;

Hugs;

Love your cute new hairdo! You look very young (maybe you are!)

We went to Blowing Rock several years ago. I didn't go up the mountain because of my fear of heights. Hubby went while I shopped the darling village! I was happy and so was he!! LOL!
