Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Wilson Creek
Wilson Creek sits at the base of 5,920-foot Grandfather Mountain and serves as the massif’s southern drainage along the Blue Ridge Escarpment. The 49,000-acre area is known for its rocky passages and the waters racing over those passages: Harpers Creek, North Harpers Creek, Wilson Creek. The combination of exposed rock and cool mountain waters make the area especially inviting in summer.
Tag along for 90 Seconds and let GetGoingNC’s Ben Rice show you why Wilson Creek merits a spot on your summer itinerary. For more information, visit the Friends of Wilson Creek.
