On the way back from a fast trip to NC in October, to help my AF son pack up his apt. before he left for Afganistan, I took a quick detour at the Biltmore exit in Ashville NC. I had just come out of a torrential rain storm, the sun had come out and the sky was of course, Carolina blue, it could not have been more beautiful! I'd been to the Biltmore house years ago at Thanksgiving with my parents who were visiting from CA and my 25 yr old son who was a baby at the time . It was all done up for Christmas and absolutely gorgeous! It was Friday and really crowded so I didn't get to drive around as much as I wanted. I did get a few pics of the gate and a couple of buildings on the main drag that I thought were pretty cool. If you ever get the chance it is a amazing place and a must see!
This is a photo of the entrance
The following photos are in the gift shop at the entrance, unfortunately I forgot to take a pic of the building!
This is one of the many paintings they had of the Biltmore House.
I loved this painting!
These deer were in the children's section
Here are a few pics of some of a couple of the buildings I took on my way out of town. Keep in mind, I'm taking them from my car!
This is a huge hotel
This is a local church
This, believe it or not, is the local McDonald's
Well, that's my quick trip to Ashville, I can't wait till I can go back and really explore!
Till next time......
