My husband and I planning a trip this September to look at property in south eastern TN and northern GA.

Which is a better experience riding North to south or South to north?

Between what towns would you recommend as a must see ?
I just rode the whole Parkway (and Skyline Drive) from Cherokee, NC, to Front Royal, VA, and I don't think it makes any difference if you're going north or south (all overlooks are accessible from both directions.)

My favorite stretch is between Boone and Little Switzerland (near Asheville) in NC.

What do you mean? It never rains in western North Carolina!

(There's a plaque on top of Mt. Mitchell that says it rains 8 out of 10 days up there!)

Nope. No fog, either. It's only high humidity levels.



November can be a bit more on the dry side, though.

Ok, Put It Back...

...You know who you are. And that "Highest Point on the Blue Ridge Parkway" sign won't fit in your bedroom. So just give it back...





That's what it looks like now... Here's what it looked like a couple of weeks ago when I rode by it...



I don't know if the National Park Service removed it or if it was destroyed by vandals, because there wasn't any information at the site.
