---An All Things NC Photo Essay
|For over 60
years, the Blue Ridge Parkway has combined modern travel with the splendid
of nature. Unlike the thousands of miles of superhighways that grace
this nation, the 469 mile parkway purposely avoids alterning the landscape
allowing visitors to enjoy the majestic beauty of the Blue Ridge in North
Carolina and Virginia. Linking two popular national parks, Shenandoah
and Great Smokey Mountains, the route goes from foothills and farmlands
to heights of over 5000 feet. No matter how high or low the elevation,
the Parkway is full of endless and spectacular views, hiking trails, and
an infinite number of natural posibilites. This photo essay will
explore the various overlooks along the Parkway in the Tar Heel State.
