We got home from Asheville, North Carolina, yesterday afternoon and it was a good trip!
I created two photo collages to summarize the impressions of it:
The first, I call, "Asheville in Spring Bloom"
and the second, hits upon some of the eye candy to be seen there
Which I do.
The following photos are some of the highlights of our trip:

Many people think of Asheville as the home of Biltmore, the huge house and gardens built by George Vanderbilt in the 1890's. It is truly a beautiful estate and a glimpse into life in an earlier era.
