That's My World: Moses Cone Memorial Park in Blowing Rock, NC


I went to a family reunion recently in Boone and Blowing Rock, NC. My sister and I went on a walk at the Moses Cone Memorial Park.

We started our walk at Flat Top Manor and then headed down to Bass Lake.


After we got on the trail not far from the manor house, the first part is in the woods which I like in the summer.

I took the shot of one of my sisters on the lake and that white structure on the hill across the lake is the Manor House where we started.


The wake in the water above is made by the ducks and geese. The last shot is of our approach back to where we started.
