KNOXVILLE ZOO, GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS, BASILICA OF ST. LAWRENCE, ASHEVILLE
Daniel and Adam at the Knoxville Zoo.
Adam takes a picture of the penguins...
...and poses with the March of the Penguins in the background.
Daniel and Adam being prairie dogs.
Adam sees whether he can jump as far as a jackrabbit.
Daniel poses with one of the female lions...
...though not the mother of this cub, who has a blankie in the mole rat exhibit.
One final penguin photo for the trip as we head toward other attractions.

St. Lawrence Basilica in Asheville.
The altar of the basilica, with a bas-relief Last Supper between the Alpha and Omega in the front.
The semicircle windows depict the life of Christ all around the sanctuary, with several larger ones and statues set into the walls.
The Chapel of Our Lady, which also contains reproductions of paintings of Our Lady of Czestochowa, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Annunciation.
The church and gardens from the rear.
Everyone needs a sign like this, not just priests.
