Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site

On our way down to South Carolina we stopped south of Asheville for some lunch at Neo Burrito and a walk at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site. Noelle and I had visited the site before, back in August of 2008. This time we had Sierra with us.

and over to the home where we stamped Sierra's passport book. We then headed over to the goat barn to check out the goats.

It turns out Sierra's favorite part of the goat barn was actually the cats.

Besides the cats, we saw the goats of course,

We then took a break at the comfort station and Sierra did a little tree hugging before we hit the road again headed south.
