The Biltmore Estate under an Autumn Fog

Cloaked in a thick morning fog, Biltmore tried to hide its Fall splendor, but Mother Nature had other plans.  The air was a cool 52 degrees, and the tourists had not yet located the main entrance. Once again, I had this American treasure almost entirely to myself. The genius of Frederick Law Olmsted was on display everywhere I turned.
