Finally, back on the road again!
After a spring spent either sick or TB sick or horrendous weather that kept us indoors (for our own safety), we finally got a great day to take our road trip this past Saturday. We decided that we would do one of North Carolina's scenic byways, the New River Valley Byway up in the mountains.
We went north out of North Wilkesboro, turned east on NC 18 towards Laurel Springs and, lo and behold, a barn quilt. This one is at the Upper Mountain Research Station run by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture.
Called Corn and Beans, it was designed by Les Miller and painted by the faculty at Westwood Elementary School.
As I had not anticipated finding barn quilts on the byway, I didn't print out the barn quilt map for Ashe County (there are approximately 40 quilts on various buildings throughout the county). So if we saw any more, it would be quite by accident.
