    Default Chimney Rock, NC

    Took the family in our 31 year old CJ7 on a 250 mile round trip to Chimney Rock in North Carolina. This is the place where they filmed last of the mohicans. Really cool- lots of rock walls, waterfalls, climbing, hiking, camping areas. Definitely worth the trip if you are anywhere in the South East.

    One of the best parts - I was getting about 15.5 mpg the whole way up there. Not bad with 31" A/T's, lots of gear, 3 people and the weight of a extra tool kit.

    Was doing about 60-65 mph @ 2500 rpms with the T-150 3 speed.

    Not too bad considering this jeep was around when the US Embassy in Iran was overrun!

    My CJ makes monthly trips up and into the Blue Ridge Mountain area. Our favorite destination is Blowing Rock - Six Pence Pub & then Kilwins Fudge shop. We headed up last year when the mtns received around a foot of snow, (the wife is from Wisconsin and misses 'her type' of winter).

    Anywho, nice pics.

    Later, T.J.

    Thanks for sharing. I plan on making a trip to NC after deployment and do some camping.

    I went to chimney rock a long time ago and loved the walk around rock and going out to the chimney. Lake lure is really good for fishing as well as the creek that runs through some of the camping sites. Loved Chimney rock and would like to go again.
