It was a nice spring weekend here in North Carolina & who wants to sit around watching TV.

So my daughter & her friend were up for a short drive & hike up Crowders Mountain, located just outside of Charlotte.

On weekends, the trail from the parking lot is pretty dense with people, but you get away from them by doing some exploring.

We explored the access trail the rock climbers use and found a couple trees to hang from and some great views.
