Chip and I were on vacation in North Carolina last week. We spent Saturday through Thursday at the Sapphire Valley Fairway Forest resort south of Asheville. We spent one day touring the Biltmore Estate. The mansion and gardens were beautiful. The azaleas and dogwoods were abundant in the area and appeared to be at their peak. The rest of our time was spent sightseeing in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We also visited Grandfather Mountain, where we crossed the mile-high suspension bridge to the summit. We enjoyed the spectacular views from Chimney Rock and on the Lake Lure boat tour. We also enjoyed hiking to several waterfalls. North Carolina was one of the most beautiful places that we have visited in our travels. We would highly recommend the trip, especially in the spring, but we would like the chance to see it in the fall, when the mountains are ablaze with color — or so we’ve heard.
