North Carolina through the eyes of Masahara Izuka aka George Masa

From Asheville’s Grove Park Inn, the Biltmore House and the likes of John D. Rockefeller, to the Cherokee people, the founding of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the charting of the Appalachian Trail…

…Imagine that, an outlier of Asian decent, to some then “good for business”, to us all now good for North Carolina.

Gaining acceptance deep in the heart of Appalachia through nothing less than a genuine, heartfelt respect of the ways of life of others. And connected, like no one else to this beautiful little patch of planet…hike on, George.
