Thunder Pig goes to Asheville

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 1, 2006

This is one of my favorite landmarks in Asheville. I believe it is called St. Lawerence. I’d love to go inside and take some pictures of the place when I have more time, but yesterday I was on a tight schedule and didn’t stray too far from the library on Haywood Street.

I took this picture on the main drag in downtown Maggie Valley as a Pave Low Chinnok flew right over me…really cool thing for a military entusiast like me. I took more, and later on, snapped a couple long-distance shots from the jobsite as a couple repeated their flyover of Maggie Valley. The Mexicans on the workcrew asked me why so many helicopters, and I told ’em we were practicing for the invasion of Iran, which has some mountainous terrain like WNC. Hey, a guy can hope can’t he?

And here is one of the pix I took Monday morning (the 30th) ahead of the rain that came in about four hours later,terminating our workday.

I’ll post more pix later, as time allows.
