The Mysterious Stone Building

I had just finished a grand adventure. A friend and I went on the zipline course at Hawksnest Zipline. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it was. We went on the easiest course because both us live with a chronic illness. Honestly, we didn’t know if we’d be able to do it, but we were sure going to give it our best.

We don’t want to be held back by our illnesses. Yes, there’s a lot of things we can’t do, but there are some adventures that beg to be taken. Ziplinning through the mountains was one of those adventures. Our guides were great and helped us through the course that took us over rivers, through the woods, and across the mountain. To say the view was incredible would be an understatement.

If you ever want to know how it feels to fly, visit Hawksnest and give it a whirl. You won’t be disappointed, I promise!

But this story isn’t about ziplinning, as amazing as that was. This story is about the beautiful stone building we saw on our way to and from Hawksnest.

I have this thing about stone buildings. I love them! Add a tower and my imagination takes off, filling my mind with damsels in distress, tea sets, and beautiful dresses. Swoon!

After our zipline adventure the beautiful stone building was on my side of the car. I asked my friend to slow down as she drove by the building so I could snag a couple of quick photos out the car window. She obliged and I captured this inspiring shot of the mysterious stone building with its tower reaching to the heavens.

There’s just one problem, I have no idea what this building is. My mind has come up with all sorts of possibilities. Is it a church? An art gallery? Someone’s house? Who knows! I like the idea of it being a church, especially since it’s in…or near…(I can’t quite remember) Seven Devils, North Carolina.

If you know what this building is, please let me know… or maybe keep it to yourself if it’s something boring and unimaginative. I’d hate to have reality crash my daydreams!

And that, my friends, is the story of how I captured The Mysterious Stone Building. Click to Tweet!

Until we meet again,
