Can you guess the name of this rock?

If you guessed, "Chimney Rock" then you would be right! This natural rock structure, through no human intervention whatsoever, looks exactly like a....uh....CHIMNEY! Amazing.

The town of Chimney Rock is a charming little touristy town nestled in a lush green valley here in Western North Carolina. It has a bit of a Disney World feel to it, but much smaller and less crowded. For some reason, it is a popular spot for bikers.

We also took a little ride 1/2 a mile down the road to Lake Lure. Looks like a nice place to go swimming - if you enjoy swimming in lakes - but otherwise wasn't terribly fascinating.
