Mountains Part 2

Here continues our mountain journey. 
My lovely friend

For dinner we went to the Daniel Boone Inn right in the heart of downtown Boone, NC.  Some might call it touristy but that isn't enough to keep us away from the delicious food! As you can see Mom is pondering whether or not she should have another biscuit. 

The sunset on our way back to the cabin

That evening some of us went to hear some bluegrass music, turns out there was some serious clogging going on as well!

We took a quick photo on the roadside of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

On Sunday we had the wonderful pleasure of seeing one of my friends (the pretty redhead in the middle), we visited her and her family in Mongolia two years ago. Here is she is with the friends she is visiting while in the States on the campus of Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC.

Monday was Race Day, officially known as "The Assault on Marion"--a 75 mile bike race through the mountains of South Carolina and North Carolina, starting in Spartanburg, SC, and ending in Marion, NC. Here are the bikers to my right...

...and then to my left

Off they go! (in the bright green)

Here is Pastor H. (who did the race with them) about to cross the finish line

And here they are afterwards, quite tired but victorious. 

And so ends our lovely trip.
