Weekend in Asheville, NC

Our Asheville weekend was filled with good food, fun town and great nature watching. I think the leaves will start peaking in a week or two, but we did drive a bit on the Blue Ridge Parkway, aka "America's Favorite Drive." We only drove a bit of it, and if it were warmer, we probably would've done a little hiking. G and I didn't make it to the Biltmore Estate this time around. We would've only had a few hours to see it, and for a $42 entrance fee, I think I would like to be there for longer than that. Just another reason to go back and then check out the Biltmore village as well. Anyway, here are a few shots of the trip.
