Asheville Adventure 1 of 2

Posted in Main, outings, Weekend Adventure at 2:48 pm by carrie

You know how your family would plan vacations months in advance? You’d research and read reviews, get a feel for your destination, plan out each day accordingly and budget your time at each place, right?

Not us!

My Mom said she was coming out from Los Angeles fairly last minute and we decided to go to Asheville for a few days and the rest of the week was up in the air!

So, we rented an adorable duplex cottage house in Asheville from a lovely couple. Upon our arrival, we were told that we had just missed a mother bear and her 3 cubs, steps from the front door of the rental cottage. Bummer. Instead, we saw turkeys (and baby turkeys!), lots of lightning bugs and a few deer. Here’s the view from our back deck…


We went into town one day and did some window shopping, but missed the Pinball Museum being open! (dang it!)



With little warning, my Mom declared that she wanted to see waterfalls. We both only brought sandals… go us…



At the pace we were moving, I can honestly say that I can’t really remember where those waterfalls were… it was exhausting.

Next up… The Biltmore Estate…
