The Grunwald family had an enjoyable day today exploring some of western North Carolina. We started out by heading over to Marshall, NC to cash a check at the closest branch of our bank and eat some lunch at the wonderful Zuma Coffee Shop. From Marshall we headed over to Asheville. The purpose of our trip was to take some seldom camping gear to sell at the wonderful Second Gear, outdoor gear consignment shop. The staff there seemed excited to sell our stuff and we are pretty excited to make some money. If they sell it for what they say they will, we should make about 100 dollars for a tent, sleeping bag, unused hydration bladder, and Trails Illustrated map that I found while hiking.
From Second Gear we decided that we wanted to go for a little hike and so we headed to the nearby Hominy Creek Park to walk along the French Broad Greenway.
From Carrier Park we took the greenway back to the car at Hominy Creek Park. We fed Sierra a little picnic lunch on the grass while a brave squirrel got ever closer to beg for (or try to steal) food.
