Not my photo

Thanks to Romantic Asheville
This is the Vance Birthplace historic site.  I've never been.  And obviously am not going till the weather changes a bit...though this photo wasn't taken this year.  We have had snow that was light, but so far nothing like this.  I kind of doubt that we will.  We shall see.

Quote for today.

"If you do not create your destiny, you will have your fate inflicted upon you." (attributed to William Irwin Thompson)



  1. This pioneer farmstead, tucked in the Reems Creek Valley, features the birthplace of Zebulon Baird Vance. The five-room log house--reconstructed around original chimneys--and its outbuildings are furnished to evoke the period from 1795- 1840. Vance's political career as Civil War officer, North Carolina governor, and U.S. senator is traced at the homestead. Also included is the history of Vance's famous mountain family

  2. I would like to live in a log cabin like this one.

  3. Nice snow laden photo of the Vance Historic site. Your quote is relative to the citizens of this world. -- barbara
