Hi everybody how are you? I hope you are having an amazing day. As most of you know, I am Puerto Rican, but I have lived in North Carolina for almost 5 years, that is why in this post I want to share with you some of my favorite places to spend a relaxing day by myself and with family. In this post I will include my own photos. For those who didn’t know, lately I’ve been getting into photography and I’m learning, so don’t judge. Visit my online gallery, here! I’m a beginner photographer so I’m starting with the basics: “Canon EOS T100 Kit” and “Wireless Tripod”!
Lake Tomahawk Park, Black Mountain, North Carolina
Scenic park featuring a lakeside trail, fishing pier & mountain views, plus tennis courts & a pool. Lake Tomahawk Park provides users a place to play, walk, swim, gather, commune and relax within a 16.3-acre parcel located centrally in Black Mountain. Lake Tomahawk is fed by Tomahawk Branch and spans 8.9 acres in size.The dam, which creates the lake itself, was constructed between 1933 and 1935. Since that time, a walking trail, numerous facilities, and several structures have been added around the lake to form the park you enjoy today.
I really love this park, is perfect to relax and have a great time with family and your loved ones. Plus, is beautiful and free, a perfect park to take pictures…

Chimney Rock is a village in Rutherford County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 113 at the 2010 census.
