Trout Dreams - Linville Ridge, NC

I'm sitting here by the fire this evening editing pics, posting to this blog and waiting to head to Linville, NC in the morning. Some really great friends of ours have a place called Trout Dreams for the weekend. Their daughter and Kanah are the best of buds and are quite entertaining when they are together. We stayed there with them back in September of this year. This place is unbelievable, it sits on about 400 acres on the side of a mountain. There are miles and miles of logging trails and 3 ATV's to explore every bit of them. There is a ridge just up from the house that overlooks the valley and over a mountain range on one side. On the other you can see the swinging bridge at Grandfather Mountain. I could go on and on about the house and how cool it is. There is a picture of former President Jimmy Carter in the living room from a visit he made to the house. It seemed appropriate to post some pics of the last trip there on the eve of the next....

If you want to see the rest of the pics from the September trip, click on this link:


  1. No matter how many times I see the pic of Kanah looking at that apple, it cracks me up.

  2. Love your photographs, Mike!!! Breathtaking!!

    So, have you been to Famous Louise's Rock House Restaurant in Linville??? It is a must!! Louise bakes the pies fresh daily. Now that would make for some photo opportunities!

    So proud of you! Hug Kanah for me!
