Another whirlwind road trip to Asheville, North Carolina has come to an end. Tired but happy are we. The story of the trip may be fleshed out in the future, for there were many photo ops to be had. A snowy mountain top and a happy reunion were the final stop before heading back to the Fairegarden. All good.
