Pilot Mountain State park click on the link to read all about it.
The peeps have seen it from a distance for many years...this was their first visit

And as luck would have it the day they visited Park Rangers were having a....
and they were seeing all kinds of Hawks and other raptors
Mom loved all the shades of green she saw down in Yadkin Valley

Mom and Sally have been friends since they were 12 years old...

See that is why I call her TOGM

As you can see, it was a beautiful day at Pilot Mountain.....elevation was a tad over 2,241 feet

No blog post of mine is complete without a picture of the star


  1. Those mountain areas remind me of our Blue Mountain.
    A hawk watch would be fun.

  2. What a beautiful place and the flowers are stunning. Great to see the Buttie Pillars as well, they haf been in very short supply over here this year, such a shame.

  3. Hi Madi,
    Gail and I are very envious of your peeps' excursion to Pilot Mountain with their old friends - it looks a great place to go exploring and raptor spotting. Who knows, if my trip to Switzerland goes well, I might one day be allowed to venture even further afield....(Gail says "in your dreams Bertie"!)
    Toodle pip!

  4. How cool that your humans got to participate in the hawk watch! Pilot mountain looks like a gorgeous place. Thank you for sharing the photos. The head peep is putting it on her want-to-visit list.

  5. We would love to watch hawks! That is an amazing long time to know someone. Lady's grandmother never liked the term old friend, she preferred - a long standing friend!

  6. Wow, those are some mighty fine photos. What fun to visit Pilot Mountain. Such good views. That was fun seeing all that.

  7. I love rocks, I love sunflowers, I love mushrooms and mountains. wow.. what a day you had.. I would have loved it to

  8. Love the pics! Great fun with great friends. I know you and Dad had a blast.
    Have a happy weekend.

  9. wow how wonderful that they could watch the hawks... it's a little like flying with them and enjoying freedom for a moments... what wonderful berds :O)

  10. I love the mountains. Friends are the best. Your Mom and Dad packed a lot into that time away. That elephant ear planter is gorgeous! We have lots of "buttie pillars" at our butterfly bushes in late September, they must be cruising through!

    As my pal Merle says, these scenes are very similar to those you would find in OZs Blue Mountains - except the rock there tends more to the reddish, yellowish hues. The scenery is outstanding - and bonus on the hawks! hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

    Hugs, your guy Raz and The Florida Furkids
