"Greening up" is the phrase you hear over and over in the NC mountains as spring blooms into a summer glow. And, boy, has summer gone green this year.

Plentiful rain has a lot to do with that. And maybe, too, our gratitude for the annual transition grows a little each year. There's no better place to enjoy four complete seasons than in our mountains.

In a recent drive around the region, we couldn't help thinking of the near-continuous treats for the eyes provided by our surroundings. What could be better than the pleasures of life in an historic small town like Franklin AND easy access to these mountain and river landscapes? 

Take a look at our snapshots from our outing. Feel free to envy those of us who live here. And remember, we're ready to welcome you as neighbors.
