But now, some experts are swapping that phrase for another that they say more accurately defines the concept.
“We’re changing to say ‘physical distance,’ and that’s on purpose because we want people to still remain connected,” Maria Van Kerkhove, an epidemiologist with the World Health Organization (WHO), said at a recent WHO press conference.

Mushroom Appreciation

Mushroom Appreciation

Graham County is one of the most wonderful spots on the East Coast of the United States to see mushrooms, lichens, mosses and ferns. All year long the mountains and valleys are filled with beauty, but you have to train yourself to look. For years, I hiked the trails and explored the stream banks and reveled in the birds, the trees and especially the wildflowers. Then I was introduced to my first wild-foraged mushroom by a friend of mine from Asheville, Mr. Alan Muskat. Alan came up to my property and led a mushroom hike to seek as many different mushrooms as we could find. I was astounded and fascinated. They were everywhere I looked!

Always a favorite stop of ours! Friendly owners, beautiful, and clean.

My grandson loves to fish there, I do too, because he cleans & fillets them!

Do not camp here, it's run by meth heads that will have you pay and wait till your set up and have your money then they send the crack head little brother to harass you and steal your stuff while your off hiking at turkey run then when you go to bed at 11:30 pm they creep onto your campsite with the flash light turned off and sneak into your site after the men are asleep and try to harass you then when you won't let humor them they call the police and have you thrown out cause it's private property and keep all your money and have you packing and getting 6 babies up and send you on your way and laugh how they stold your medicine and anything else of value. Dont go here. They also will cuss at the children. And watch your site with binoculars to see if they can catch you naked. Warning do not camp here
