Friday morning the 26th we headed to North Carolina. As we drove Scott looked for a place to stay and a river to raft. We ended up in Ashville, NC. It is so pretty in NC! The mountains, the flowers, even the trees are gorgeous. Scott and the girls swam at the hotel pool in Ashville while I went shopping for a little while. Some quiet shopping. :-) The next morning we headed down the Blue Ridge Parkway. It you've never done that, be sure to do it sometime. We walked down a few trails along the parkway and saw some waterfalls. Beautiful. We took a side road off the parkway and headed towards the Pigeon River.
