From Casey: “When I heard we were going to be getting between 4-6” of snow in the mountains AND I had a free weekend, I immediately packed the pups up, booked us a hotel, and off we went!
On the way, we found this cute little pull off area that overlooked a stunning river.
Someone had actually just been by, and built a 6′ snowman!
Chewie loved pouncing through the snow while Molly just wanted to roll all in it.
Towards mid-afternoon, we finally arrived at Western Carolina where students were out sledding and building the biggest snowmen possible. My sister was there, so we surprised her and her friends with a visit. Needless to say, these two were a huge hit.
We spent the night all cozied up and then got up early the next day to find it was STILL snowing. Now we were up to a solid FOOT of snow.
I knew we needed to get back to Charlotte before roads got too bad or traffic started, so we packed everything, and headed out. On the way, I saw a sign for an orchard and figured it might be a good empty spot to let Chewie and Molly chase each other around. To my great surprise, this place was PERFECT. The snow was up to 14 inches deep. Poor Molly was struggling to bounce through it all, but Chewie sure loved it.
Especially since they had just trimmed the trees, which means sticks were EVERYWHERE!”
