My picture of the Cone Mansion, in the moutains above Blowing Rock, North Carolina
This is the Cone Mansion, in the mountains high above Blowing Rock, NC. What a beautiful place to visit on a hot summer day - easily 15 degrees cooler than Valdese. For some reason this view of the mansion suited me, fire hydrant an all.
It apparently was "Bring your horse to the mansion" day. There was a group of 40 or so horses and riders preparing to go riding on the mansion grounds. I belive the grounds has 25 miles or so of paths and tracks to ride & hike.
