Asheville, NC March 22-26, 2016

We stayed at Foothills Family Camground in Forest City, North Carolina.  It's about 60 miles southeast of Asheville.  It's a nice rural campground with nothing but peace and quiet.  It was really nice to relax for a few days.

Our campsite was nice and spacious with great views.

While relaxing here, we made some Dutch Oven Lasagna.  Eating great leftovers for days....

The Peach Trees were just coming into bloom.

We toured the Biltmore House in Asheville.  With over 135,000 sf of living space (twice the size of the Hearst Castle), it's the largest privately owned home in the USA.

The Biltmore is still owned by the Vanderbilt descendants, and it's located on over 8,000 acres of beautiful hills, valleys, lakes and rivers.  The house has 250 rooms, including 33 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms and 65 fireplaces.

This is one of the garden areas overlooking the conservatory.

Lots of flowers blooming at the Biltmore Gardens this Spring.

Here is Linda standing in front of the waterfall.  The Biltmore Bass Pond is located on the other side of the dam wall.
