Gorgeous scenery, thanks for taking us on your trip.

I want that little house, love the tree limbs they used for the porch rail.

Beautiful scenery, I really like the first photo. And the house. It looks doll-like.

Breathtaking scenery. The first photograph is really lovely. Does anyone actually live in that tiny house?

This little cabin was the home of a couple named Beniger. The wife was a grower of flax and spun yarn and made cloth for their clothing. Her loom is still in the cabin along with a spinning wheel, butter churn, etc. She lived in the cabin until the Blue Ridge Parkway was being built in the 1940's, then went to live with her daughter because it was too noisy! What a rugged life. This place has been preserved by the state.
The photos don't really capture the colors as I had to take many of them out the car window. We also visited the mansion built by Moses Cone where the mountain arts are displayed, such as pottery, paintings, jewelry and knits. I get excited to remember it. Sorry I went on.
