The winding road led us up the mountain to Asheville, NC for a pit-stop in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Ah, what a trip it’s been!
First stop, the new Sierra Nevada brewery. Everything this company does is done well.
A dip in the French Broad river in Marshall, NC.
And, another dip in the French Broad under the highway in Asheville!
Another in the Pisgah National Forest.
And a million dollar view in the cool air nearing Mt. Pisgah.
These desert-dwellers ran into their first real rainstorm in months and were foolish enough to stand out in it! The reward: well, just look at this sky.
A little hike in the forest…
A few fireworks…
And these travelers will take a break from the road.
Resting up for Part II of Saguaro To Sea!
