Welcome to North Carolina and home of the coolest KFC sign we’ve seen!
Field of the Woods, outside Murphy, N.C. This is the Bible belt, you know!
A replica of Jesus’ tomb. Joe rolls the stone away with one hand! Inside we find it is empty, except for….
5 baby swallows!!!
On Sunday, we will be rafting this Nantahala river unguided!!!
We arrived! David isn’t with us, but we’ll be seeing him in a day.
Joe has the camera ready and his finest pictures will be posted below.
We hiked up to Clingman’s dome. It started raining on the way back, but Joe and Erik had fun with it.
Erik was playing the role of zombie!
