Blue Ridge Parkway

In western North Carolina the Blue Ridge Parkway runs through Asheville near where some dear friends live. Part of these were taken with them near Waynesville and some north of Asheville. Either way, this has to be the greenest place on the face of the earth, or at least North America. You might actually get a green overdose.

From the inn at Mt. Pisgua.

From one of the ranger stations/stores along the route. To the right of the curve you pass through a short tunnel.

There was green everywhere.

This little fellow posed about ten feet from me.

The small white vertical line to the left of center is an 800 foot waterfall.

Again the waterfall just below center behind the rail fence.

Another rail fence keeping you from falling off the edge.

Day Lilies were everywhere.

This was the steepest mountain we saw along the parkway.

Queen Anne's Lace in the foreground of this one.

View from the patio of our friends near Waynesville. What a site to wake up to in the mornings.

I think that this is a Rhotodendron.

Slightly different view from the patio.

From the Pisgua Inn again.
