Asheville Ring Municipalities

Wasn't sure where to put these pics, as Marion is a bit too far out from Charlotte to post there, and probably too small for its own thread.  Anyway, about two weeks ago I finally had the chance to drive up to Asheville, and drove through Marion en route to Mount Mitchell on the way.  Nice little town, nothing terribly special but I wanted to share a few pics since it gets so little attention otherwise.

Also, if you're like me and love driving down curvy narrow roads, NC 80 to the northwest of Marion is one of the most fun roads I have driven on to date.  Very demanding, so no pics, but the scenery is beautiful and the road is well-kept.

There is a downtown coffee shop up there I seem to remember.  It had a surprisingly bohemian feel considering the context.

I always take NC 80 to the BRP then on to Mt Mitchell.  I love the curves and twists and turns.  Fun driving.
