As many of you know, Betsy and I have a geotracker which allows us to determine the location of pictures that we take. We’ve had it for a year, and use it whenever we take a trip.
Last week’s trip to Biltmore Estate was no exception. We turned the geotracker on before we left home and were able to track our journey on Google Earth.
The map above, which can be enlarged by clicking on it, shows our journey from Fairfield Glade, Tennessee, to Asheville, North Carolina. As you can see we traveled almost the entire way on Interstate 40. We timed our trip to miss rush hour in Knoxville, Tennessee, when traveling both ways.
This image shows the Biltmore Estate and the things we did once we got there. This image, too, can be enlarged by clicking on it.
When we got to Biltmore we drove past the house and parked near the Conservatory. It had been our intention to see the tulips first, but the azaleas were so pretty as we drove in that we decided to visit the Azalea Garden first. So we walked over to the path to the Azalea Garden and walked through that garden down to the Bass Pond. We then hiked around the west (left) side of the Bass Pond to the waterfall at the southern end. We then walked back through the Azalea Garden to the Walled Garden where we enjoyed the tulips in bloom.
I’ve now given you a bird’s eye view of our trip to Biltmore, thanks to our geotracker.
