But first, a little about the village of Chimney Rock.
It was pretty empty the day I was there but it's obviously a magnet for summer crowds. It reminds me of the western North Carolina I saw one summer back in Fifties.There are telescopes for looking at the 'chimney' and the main street is lined with establishments selling barbecue, ice cream, fudge, walking sticks, and all manner of mountain souvenirs. And postcards.
And that brings me to the email I just had to share.
