Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina / Virginia

I'm going to treat the Blue Ridge Parkway a bit differently, for two reasons.

First, the three times I've been on the Parkway have been in three different seasons, so if I collated the images in order, the seasons would change from image to image. So, I've decided to keep the images separated by trip.

Second, I'm not really sure I could collate all the images. This is one reason why I wish Canons would have a GPS.

This trip wasn't exactly in the winter, but it was before springs, so none of the deciduous trees have leaves...

Great Smoky Mountain National Park
Great Smoky Mountain Link Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most visited park in America due to its location in the East. It's a scenic park, with the tourist towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge just outside the entrance on one side, and the start of the Blue Ridge Parkway, one of my favorite roads in America on the other.

It is a hugely popular park for fall colors.
