A Trip Through Eastern Carolina: Lake Matamuskeet and Aurora

In mid-October 2007, I took a day off to ride past one of North Carolina's great wonders and the site of what may have been the goofiest argribusiness scheme in US history. Along the way I found some great animals, plants, distinctive architecture, took a couple of ferry rides and dug for fossils at the Aurora Fossil Museum.

The first sight of the trip:  cotton at sunrise.  I didn't even know people GREW it here!  The sunrise color adds a nice touch and in fact the light seemed to vary from minute to minute all day.
