Biltmore House Vista



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

When Betsy and I visited the Biltmore Estate near Asheville, North Carolina, at the end of July, we hiked up to the Statue of Diana, where we had this wonderful view of the house with the mountains behind it.

Looks a lot like a castle I was lived in. Really, I did live in a castle in Scotland. : )

Beautiful picture.

WoW, George! What a fantastic shot of the Biltmore House. You have a picture here they could use commercially.

It's like a scene out of a movie when they reach the 'castle'. :)
Lovely view!

I don't think I've mentioned that I absolutely love this header George.

What beautiful tones in the rose, and the droplets add even more loveliness to the photo.

I have a similar photo taken at the statue of Diana. I just adore all the statures, gargoyles and such, that are there.

What a beautiful scene! I just read that Biltmore estate hosts an endurance ride every year. I'd love to go. Maybe someday.

That place is so amazing! Glad you two have been able to enjoy it over and over.
