Post Your Pictures of the Blue Ridge Mountains...

...I saw a couple of suggestions to start a thread for posting our pictures of the Blue Ridge Parkway...

Someone should start a Blue Ridge Parkway picture thread.

How about if we expand it beyond the Blue Ridge Parkway and include any of your pictures in the Blue Ridge, Smoky, and Appalachian Mountains?

So, if no one else has started it, I'll begin with this one I took last year on Grandfather Mountain...

Even cloudy days are pretty in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Here's a picture near Asheville, North Carolina...

Don't forget there are valleys between the mountains.

Thank you for starting this thread. I was born and raised in these mountains (Galax, VA) and to me they are the most beautiful place on Earth.

All of the pictures are beautiful.Keep them coming.
My husband and I planning a trip this September to look at property in south eastern TN and northern GA.

We will be on a limited time frame and unfortunatly only have time for a meandering one way photo op ride on part of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

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

Between what towns would you recommend as a must see ?
