The Biltmore


We visited The Biltmore, former home of the Vanderbilts, in North Carolina and it was an impressive place indeed! Unfortunately, we couldn't take photos inside, but I snapped quite a few from the grounds. The flower garden was most impressive this time of year. I have many more photos that I will post at some point in the future, but for now all you get is this typical postcard shot to get an idea of the size of the place!
