THE CRADLE OF FORESTRY
On the way home from the Enon Baptist Churches, I stopped here (the Cradle of Forestry in Pisgah National Forest). This is a fascinating center about the development of forestry in this region. If I remember correctly, those two guys cutting the tree are using a "misery whip." Do that for twelve hours and you will sleep like a baby! This is a large museum and information center and while I was there, buses arrived with school kids and summer camp personnel. There was also a steady traffic in hikers and tourists. I decided that they needed a storyteller and the Director told me he would think about it.
