I drove by this spot a few weeks ago and missed an opportunity to photograph a large herd of cattle in the field. It was beautiful and I keep waiting and looking for them to wander back to create that idyllic image. While I was waiting, this sky shot opened up.
I believe this is considered Dairy Road at Biltmore, but the names are a little confusing because its a continuation of the Winery Approach Road and then turns into Winery Road at Antler Village. All along the lagoon trail. The little bridge/culvert caught my attention as the water runs into the French Broad. Sheep Pasture in the background along Deer Park Road.
Walking from the Lagoon Trail towards Antler Village at the Biltmore Estate is a quick 1.7 mile, flat path. Typically enjoyed when the mile long sunflower rows are out, a little less crowded today.
Simple shot towards Mt. Pisgah from the Deer Park Trail at Biltmore. Very close to the south terrace of the house you can cut down the mountain to reach the lagoon trail. 22 Miles of trails available at Biltmore we've been enjoying as the weather keeps improving.
Sheep pasture on the Biltmore Estate, these happy creatures have been wearing out this trail from the barn over the years. The typical herd size at Biltmore is 150 South African White Dorper Sheep as a small portion are culled each year as part of the field to table program.
Beyond the Lagoon on the way to Antler Village. Most of the time the sunflowers in this area are the big attraction but I liked the simplicity of the sky and mountains on this clear day in March.
Below the azalea garden at the Biltmore Estate you come to the Bass Pond boat house. Good spot to hang out and enjoy the old, historic structure. Quick trail leads on around the lake to the Bass Pond Waterfall.
