Spent two weeks here complete with a car in a lovely two level bungalow. Black mountain is a quaint little back water in the very midst of the Bible belt and Billy Graham country. Had a personal tour of the Billy Graham Campus from our neighbour, who also took us to a Friday night church fish supper. A lovely evening, great food and awesome Southern hospitality along with one bluegrass music.

Town is just outside Asheville. Did a hop on and off bus tour around Asheville, a lovely city. Visited the Biltimore Estate. Drove up the Blue Ridge Parkway, some awesome scenery and colourful Autumn foliage. Sadly didn’t get to see the black bear visit our garden but did manage to see a few in a small local zoo. Visited Grandfather Mountain, of Forrest Gump fame, and Stone Mountain. Plenty to see and do with awesome scenery all around.
