Heading out to Asheville, North Carolina with some friends of mine on a trip a while back, turned out to be a really very nice vacation. We decided to drive all the way there from New York City, which was quite a long drive, at over 10 hours. Our first destination there was the Pisgah National Forest. It was such a pleasant place to be in, that we enjoyed just the walking and hiking there immensely! It was a very great start to an even greater trip out in the North Carolina areas with a few good friends of mine.
