The Great Grunwald Roadtrip of 2013 begins! This morning I took the garbage to the waste transfer station as soon as it opened and we hit the road. Our destination is eventually Philadelphia, but on the way we plan stops in Greensboro, the Outer Banks and Wilmington, Delaware. Today we would be headed to the famous rhododendron gardens on Roan Mountain.
We made the circuitous drive through Erwin and the mountains to Carver's Gap. From Carver's Gap we took the road that leads directly to the gardens. We parked the car and got out to some cool temperatures and light fog. We hadn't even packed jackets!
