Our day at Appalachian University with Brittany
We had the perfect weather - it was a little on the chilly side, leaves were changing and I was oohing and aaahing over all the beautiful reds, oranges and yellows. If this wasn't peak, I don't know what was!! LOL
We left at 7 am and got back around midnight so it was a long day. ASU was HUGE and Brittany showed us all around campus. We walked around Boone (love the little shops!). Emily & Brittany got their cartiledges (top parts of their ears) pierced. OUCH!
On our way to dinner, we saw an awful motorcycle wreck right in front of our very eyes. They literally tried to avoid hitting some cars and they skidded out of control and fell over on their bike. They seemed ok and there were plenty of people who stopped to help them (it was a couple on one motorcycle).
Ate dinner at the Mellow Mushroom. Had the white pizza and it was the best pizza I have ever had! Boone was extremely crowded (and there was no ASU home game) and I felt like we waited alot in traffic jams and rode around forever looking for parking spaces.
On the way back, Dalton slept all the way and I missed hitting a white/gray wolf or a coyote by a millisecond. I thought at first it was a fox but i think it was too tall for that. Talk about scary!!
I managed to miss the Nascar traffic. It was our big race last night and i literally sped by the exit within seconds of the race getting out !! I had the race on the radio and I felt like I was in the race with them. It was so funny!! I just wanted to make it home WITHOUT sitting in hours of traffic since I do go right past the Nascar exit.
So all in all, it was a great day and I can't wait to go back and visit again. Emily kept saying "wow this place is huge" so I really don't know what she thought of the campus itself. LOL
