And now the last of vacation

A southern style hot dog.   Pretzel roll, hot dog, chili and cole slaw.
I wasn't sure about this but the vote it Yummo!
Biltmore from the Italian Water Garden

This estate is emmense.   8,000 acres I think.  

We happened on newlyweds having photos taken.  What a backdrop.  
Friends are getting married there in the spring.   It will be awesome.

Sunrise in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Goodbye Little Switzerland
These mountains are all now capped in snow.

Sunrise in New Market, VA on our way home.

Back to civilization.  Golf carts galore!
Where will we go next year?

Back in time?
The Bat Cave? 

 Destination to be decided......

Wasn't the Biltmore spectacular, Robin? We visited in October, too--if I lived near there I would definitely purchase a yearly pass!! What fun that you'll get to go back for your friend's wedding next spring...
