I know very little about the state of North Carolina. What I do know is people visit it and come back saying how wonderful it is and that they are going back to the state. There is natural beauty with both mountains and ocean beaches.
I found all of the pictures at Wikipedia Commons. The exceptions are the two pictures of Dogwood flowers.
