Springtime has Arrived at Lake Lure

It was 78 degrees today around an almost full Lake Lure. After six days of mild temperatures, Spring is here, and it has happened in just a few days.

Hickory Nut Gorge at Lake Lure
From a high ridge on the east side of the lake, Hickory Nut Gorge stretches toward Bearwallow Mountain on the western horizon. Hard to believe that all of this was covered in snow just seventeen days ago, and that the coldest temperature in ten years was recorded just three weeks ago.
