Banner Elk, North Carolina: Winter

September 23, 2013

As the winter months approach us, thoughts turn to celebration with family and friends.  What better place to honor the spirit of the season than in the iconic Blue Ridge Mountains — known around the world as one of the most cherished and storied holiday travel destinations.  Visiting a mountain town like Banner Elk in all of its glory is something that must be experienced once in this lifetime.  However, there is a lot to explore during your visit, so you might not be able to accomplish everything in one trip.  This gives you the perfect excuse to return to sooner rather than later.  The following photos were taken last year during the winter months:

This post is part two of a four-part series that examines “the seasons in Banner Elk, North Carolina”.  I highly recommend staying at the Banner Elk Winery & Villa if you should find yourself in this part of the High Country no matter what time of the year it is.

    Love Banner Elk. My grandma is from Florida so she goes to NC during the summer when its too hot. I have such fond memories of the time I spent there. The Blue Ridge mountains are an amazingly beautiful and peaceful place. Grandfather mountain is worth a visit if your in the area!

    Oh wow, Andi!! This post made my raised-in-Northern-Canada heart happy. :-) It looks cold, of course, but SO beautiful!! I’d love to squirrel away in a warm, cozy room after a day of tramping through the woods. So gorgeous. :-)

    This made me excited for winter, too. I love the combination of warm horizon and snow in that one photo of you. How fun to see among snow and ice!
