NC Arboretum ~ Montage

This past Saturday we went to the North Carolina Arboretum and we had an awesome time!
With over 430 acres the Arboretum is a public garden that sits within the Pisgah National Forest and the Bent Creek Experimental Forest. The photo above features all of the great things we saw during our visit. Along with the hiking trails and gardens they also had a huge greenhouse, education center, and exhibit center as well. This week I will share some of my favorite pictures from the Arboretum so check back. While there we saw a fantastic exhibit of watercolor paintings by Anne Vasilik in the Baker Exhibit Center. Also showcased was a lady named Barbara Webster who creates quilts from nature photographs. Some of them were really awesome.
We took our time walking in and around the gardens taking many pictures, of course. Then to get the blood flowing we hopped on the Carolina Mountain Trail which meandered through the Bent Creek for a few miles. It was definitely a fun filled day, I would love to go back some time to participate in the various demonstrations they have throughout the year. It was a beautiful place!
