My first visits were during my college days at UNC Greensboro. Boone was a hub and hangout spot when my dorm mates and I would go to Valle Crucis, a much smaller mountain town about fifteen miles from Boone. I kept coming to visit when my brother decided to attend ASU and eventually, I couldn't stay away.
