Good morning from North Carolina! After a tasty breakfast, I hung out on Dave and Debby's back deck and watched the hummingbirds eat their breakfast, too.
It rained most of the morning, so we spent some time checking out some cool shops and antique stores in Hendersonville. It looked like it was clearing after lunch, so we decided to try hiking to some waterfalls. We only got a few hundred feet into the hike before it started raining again, so we turned around.
We drove a little further back to check out a different trail area. As we were driving back to the main road Dave suddenly stopped. There was a copperhead in the middle of the road! It wasn't afraid of us at all; it raised its head and eyeballed Dave as he walked around, looking at it.
The weather did eventually get a little better, so we decided to hike Big Glassy Trail at the Carl Sandburg Home. There were mushrooms everywhere along the sides of the trail.
