Glad to see you made it to the D-Day Memorial!!!
I think it's one of those lesser known places, not in or near a large city, and probably doesn't get near the attention it deserves.
Like the men it honors....

Thanks for posting the pics.

peaks of otter lodge opened the weekend I was down. I was told they now have tv and Internet in the rooms.
I stayed down in Bedford at a Super 8 to save some $$ and it was close to the D Day Memorial.
The second night I camped at Julian Price Park. They have been having lots of hard storms and the campground showed it. I found a nice high spot close to the facilities.

I think there were 3 campers in the upper campground. The tent proved itself waterproof as it poured around 3 AM.

The campground is full of rhododendron.



The town of Blowing Rock is not far from the campground and has quite a few restaurants etc.

Next stop Linville Falls. I had been there before, but never hiked to the falls.

They have been having quite a bit of rain so there was lots of water going over the falls.

I hiked up to the overlook to get a view from above the falls.
