On our way to Myrtle Beach, we stopped for a few days in the Smokey Mountains. On the road through the National Park, we actually caught brief glimpses of a black bear foraging along the side of the road.
After visiting the park we decided to take a shortcut back to our campsite. The road was very winding with switchbacks every 100 feet or so. At one point, the pavement ended and we were driving on a dirt one-lane road not knowing where we would end up. Finally, we reached pavement again and were relieved to be back in civilization.
We enjoyed Asheville a lot. It is a very vibrant city. We passed on visiting the Biltmore as it costs $55 each for admission. Advanced purchase of tickets could have lowered it to $45, but for our budget would have felt better at about $30. And then we could well pass through there again sometime.
