We enjoyed the scenery as we drove from Brevard to Waynesville, North Carolina last Thursday. It had snowed the night before and a dusting of snow remained in the shaded areas beside US-276. Some exposed rockfaces were encased in ice, while some had long icicles hanging from them. We took time to stop and visit Looking Glass Falls, one of my favorite waterfalls in our state.
There are two views of Looking Glass Falls in my vintage postcard book, The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
It was a cold but bright sunny day. I love driving on curvy mountain roads. US-276 is a good one. It was a great day!
We visited Mast General Store on North Main Street in Waynesville, North Carolina. No visit to Mast General Store is complete without a trip to the candy section. You pick up a basket and select how much of each wrapped candies you wish to purchase. You pay by the pound of candy; it’s all the same price. In addition to current popular candies, they sell some old-fashioned candies that were all the rage in the mid-20th century.
I was happy to find my book on display and for sale at Mast General Store. I hope it’s available at all their locations in western North and South Carolina.
