Here are some pictures from our time in Asheville visiting the Biltmore and some stops along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
When we got to Asheville we checked into our hotel and then headed out to find Devil's Courthouse:
It was a little chilly and rainy when we left the car so the munchkin has on his awesome camo rain jacket
I didn't wear my walking boot for this hike - pretty sure my doctor would not be thrilled.

Can't resist kissing this kid
This picture does no justice to how steep the walk was. At least 3/4 of it was paved. The last part was like walking through a dry creek bed. Perfect with my bum foot.

That big rock behind us is what we were just on top of
A stop along the parkway
Looking Glass Rock
Andrew swimming in the whirlpool tub in our hotel room. I couldn't get the drainplug in the regular tub so we had to use this one.
Time for the Biltmore!
You aren't allowed to take pictures in the house, but I snuck one in the stone hallway in the basement
In the gardens
250 rooms in this place
A little photo-op in the garden
Andrew was less than impressed with the conservatory
And he was out by the end of the tour
A little stop along the parkway for some lunch and to stretch our legs
Hanging out on top of Mt Mitchell
Nice rat tail on the dude behind us. And no, Andrew is not wearing shoes - we're rednecky like that sometimes.

I'll come back tomorrow with pictures from the rest of our trip.
