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.

I was a bit lost -- a fog had rolled in -- when I happened upon one of those troubling moments about traveling in rural areas. (Middletown NC, near Lake Mattamuskeet -- and yes, the picture is straight.  The sign is crooked.<g>)
