The Biltmore Estate

Visiting the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, can be a great experience, if you don't spend too much time in the house. It's big, ornate, and a little too elaborate for my tastes. The gardens and the grounds are interesting, however. Here are some pictures. Click on them to make them larger.
