: : There's an article in today's (Oct. 24) CHARLOTTE OBSERVER about Chimney ROck Park which mentions LOTM. (As in scenes featuring Daniel Day-Lewis, etc. were filmed there.) There's a nice shot of the falls. It was written by a Florida reporter. I'm off now to Biltmore House for Michaelmas, the final day.

: Greetings Susan!
: Ahh, the Biltmore. Such a lovely spot for a Sunday afternoon.
: May I ask, what is "Michaelmas"?
Michaelmas is the fall harvest festival that Biltmore uses to help ease the wait for getting into the house during the fall leaf season.
It featured artisans, musicians, storytellers and a reenactment of St. George & the dragon, and Irish dancers. They had "corn sculptures" --wonderful scarecrows supposed to capture bad spirits, and enough hay to provide everyone with sneezes!
Of course I couldn't resist one last walk across Albany bridge, and as I passed a couple taking pictures of the leaves, I heard the guy remark, "You know The Last of the Mohicans? Well, this was the bridge...."
