On Sunday we spent several hours at Monticello touring the house and grounds and learning more about the 3rd US President and his times. The home is wonderful and the restoration is impeccable considering the fact that all of Jefferson’s possessions as well as his home was sold after his death to pay his indebtedness. We definitely did not feel like we had seen enough when we just ran out of energy. This is one place we certainly want to return to another time. Before returning to the campground we stopped at the apple orchard on Carter Mountain and picked half a dozen Jonagold apples from the trees. Yum.
