Carl Sandburg Home
It was a good afternoon to be at the park. Lots of folks out walking dogs or with family enjoying the outdoors. We talked to several folks as we hiked up to the Glassy Mountain Lookout. It is not a strenuous hike. Most of the color is gone from the trees, so Glassy shows more of purple/blue hue.
The Carl Sandburg Historic Site is easy to find. Turn by the post office in Flat Rock. It is on the left just minutes from the post office. After your visit to the park, visit the Flat Rock Village Bakery for some pizza, fresh baked goodies, and a cup of tea or coffee. There are several little shops next door to the bakery that are worth a gander. Hendersonville is just a hop and skip down the road where you will find Hannah Flanagan's Irish Pub which is a great place to find some hearty delicious food.
