Where in Carolina Country is This?
The December “Where Is This” photo by Rutherford EMC member Brad Camp features the covered bridge along the Fonta Flora Trail at Lake James, located off Highway 126 in Burke County. The almost 20-mile, multi-use trail will eventually reach 100 miles, connecting Morganton to Asheville, as well as the Overmountain Victory State Trail and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail along the way. For now, hikers and bikers enjoy the trail as it showcases Lake James and its surrounding environs. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Samuel Smith of Morganton, a Rutherford EMC member.
