My travels with Charlie-North Carolina- Oct. 2006- (Part Three)
We traveled north after leaving Mars Hill-Ashville area, to Spruce Pine-Banner Elk and Boone.
The roads were evermore winding and with mountains in every direction. We noticed that a lot of leaves had fallen here, leaving some trees bare!
Christmas tree farms are a big industry in this High Country of NC. The hills are dotted with trees, many tagged and ready for cutting for this Christmas season. It was a lovely sight-the small cattle farms and tree farms and many rustic old barns still standing-and the (still) colorful mountains as a backdrop for all of it!
