The trip in the fall was to see the beautiful leaves changing colors and the Biltmore Estate with Christmas decorations. This time, it was to see the amazing greenery along the Blue Ridge Mountains.
It was a 3-hour drive, and the first time my car experienced true altitudes and angles. I may need to get my breaks checked after this trip...
We stayed overnight in a Best Western and first took a stroll around downtown. The streets are full of local restaurants, bars, and shops. Each one different from the next. It would take weeks to completely experience each one.
But I found the most amazing place... The Gourmet Chip! It was filled with so many fancy style potato chips, plantain chips, and more!

Errol says he definitely wants to come again on one of his trips to visit North Carolina. Can't wait!
