100 North Carolina Icons-- Part 6

Some of these I knew, some I didn't.

51.  DOC WATSON--  Sad to lose this great musician.

52.  WATERFALLS--  Some of them are Linville, Elk, Bridal Veil.  But, they all follow the same basic principle, gravity.

53.  JOCKEY'S RIDGE--  Ecologically-speaking, the tallest active sand dune system on the East Coast.  Barefoot-ologically speaking, Ooh, Ooh, Ow. Hot! Hot! Hot!

54.  CALABASH SEAFOOD--  Just this side of the SC border.  Sometimes called the Seafood Capital of the World.  Eat some and you'll probably agree.

55.  BLACK BEARS--  Around 11,000 of them.  Don't pet.

56.  JOHN COLTRANE--  Jazzy jazz.

57.  "CAROLINA IN MY MIND"--  James Taylor's song mentions "Carolina" 13 times.

58.  DEAN SMITH--  Great coach, great for the game and much easier to spell and pronounce that that Duke guy, Krzyzewski.

59.  N.C. MUSEUM OF ART--  First art museum in country established with public funds.

60.  PILOT MOUNTAIN--  Was this the Mount Pilot from the "Andy Griffith Show?"  A right-striking landform.
