Day 10: Carl Sandburg Home – Connemara
The first time I visited Carl Sandburg’s North Carolina mountain home, I wasn’t quite sure who he was. I had been told repeatedly, though, that I needed to take my kids up to see the goats at Connemara, and to walk the trails offered for enjoyment there. It was free, with a small fee being charged only to tour the home. Here is a link with more information. http://www.nps.gov/carl/index.htm
Since the first time that I went to Carl Sandburg’s home 2 years ago, we make it a “must see” place to visit each time that we come. The kids DO love to interact with the goats (especially in the spring when the babies are born!), but they also love to walk the trails, look at the waterfall, and see glassy mountain when they are there.
Now that our “baby” is almost 3 (too big to carry, yet too small to walk the 3 miles round trip)….you will not see images of the views of Big Glassy Mountain here today. But here is a little bit of eye candy of what Connemara farms has to offer, should you ever decide to make the trip. Enjoy~
