NC's Blue Ridge Parkway

Summer is right around the corner!  How about a vacation?  From the Southern Appalachian Mountains in the west to the Atlantic Ocean and the Outer Banks in the east, the opportunities for fun recreation and exploration abound in North Carolina.

Let's take a look at the mountains, specifically the Blue Ridge Parkway.  This road traverses 469 scenic miles from the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina.  The NC Literary Map has several titles pertaining to this unique feature of our state.

One of these books is entitled "Blue Ridge Parkway Vistas: A Comprehensive Identification Guide" by photographer and author Tim Barnwell.  This informative book gives the names of various peaks seen from the Parkway overlooks, as well as nearby popular attractions both on and off this road.  Check it out at your local library or bookstore!  Happy reading (and traveling)!
