Asheville


Baby Wren Being Rescued



Belle Dancer (Asheville, N.C.)



Majestic Mountains




Long View Beauty in the Valley

We had a great road trip to Asheville, N.C. this
past Saturday. The scenic views include the
mountainous terrain of Asheville, with big mountain
tops looming and billowy blue skies rolling over
green valleys to ponder upon. Downtown
Asheville has its more unusual delights...
with skilled bluegrass musicians and
colorful mimes that line the building
fronts and the downtown square to entertain.
Top: We attended a local herb festival in
Banner Elk for a High Country Writers book
signing on Sunday. At the nearby orchid
selling tent, a women was diligently feeding
5 baby wrens that she had rescued.
Don't they look weak? Not sure if they
can survive
their innate frailty without
their mother...Free bluegrass musicians
performed here for the day, as well!
And a good time was had...by all.
