US Airways - October 2014 - (Page 40)

explore Country Comfort Mountain adventure plus Southern hospitality at Single Tree Gun & Plough in rural North Carolina By Ellie Baldini ★ Clockwise from top: an autumn view from atop Hanging Rock, rocking chairs, mountain riding by horseback, hiking trails, canoeing and kayaking, and Single Tree's inviting Lodge porch 40 OCTOBER 2014 The first thing you need to know about me? I'm a big fan of the Great Indoors. So as I drove my decidedly un-rugged sedan through increasingly un-populated Stokes County, North Carolina, all I could think was, "What have I gotten myself into this time?" My boyfriend, Peter, was along for the ride, and seemed to find the thought of me hiking Hanging Rock - the much-lauded state park and the county's claim to fame - more than a little amusing. His quiet smile grew to a full-fledged grin as we arrived at our destination: Singletree Gun & Plough. I climbed out of the car and took a deep breath, taking in my surroundings. To my right was a two- story wooden lodge encircled by an inviting porch, complete with rocking chairs, flowering planters, lanterns, and even barn cats. The sprawling property was lush and green, and seemed to be the only clearing within miles and miles of thick, unspoiled forest. To my left was Hanging Rock, a looming mountain jutting dramatically upward. And right in front of me, to the west, was the setting sun, dipping below the hills and painting the open sky in swaths of purples and oranges. "Hey y'all!"
