Views from the Top of the World
When the weather is gorgeous in the North Carolina mountains, there is nothing like taking in the incredible views. Hiking trails are abundant and for every level of ability. These photos feature a stop right along the Blue Ridge Parkway, a short easy hike and a much more strenuous option – each with their own rewards. Just pay attention to the descriptions (easily found on-line) and be sure to be prepared with the right footwear, clothing, hat, walking stick (sure helps on the steep walk back downhill) and water. Oh yeah – don’t forget your camera!
