Had a early breakfast of Eggs Benedict. Gib. First stop West Jefferson. It was a nice town. Ashe County cheese made there. I have a sample of 7 year old super sharp cheddar. They have a running regular movie theatre.
A trip to see two local churches that had frescoes painted in them. 1974-80.
These frescoes below were painted by Ben Long and his students from 1974 to 1977.
This Last Supper fresco in 1980 in an Episcopal Church in Glendale Springs.
On to Todd, NC and the Todd Mercantile Store. No pics but an incredible baker in residence. Yummy cinnamon roll. New River nearby for paddling.
Todd is great for cycling as well. I will do it upon return On to Roan Mtn. I stopped for local pork BBQ. I got some pinto beans, cornbread and onions for dinner with slaw!
Out to Roan Mtn State Park. Wow!
It was a big tourist day! Came back to this map and will probably be heading home early. Peace Tres
