Blue Ridge Parkway – Waterfalls

:: Destinations – North America – North Carolina

The Blue Ridge Parkway, and fall colors can make a spectacular combination. However, this trip in the fall of 2000, began with a very different aim – to go waterfall spotting, in the scenic forests of the mountains of North Carolina.

As the weather began turning colder in early fall, and the maples began turning a faint hue of golden brown, it felt like the right time to plan a visit to the mountains of North Carolina. Scouring the maps (mind you, these were the days, when the Internet wasn’t so ubiquitous!), I identified an area that sat in the middle of the mountains and forests, and the maps and guide books only made some passing references to the waterfalls along one of the routes. And so it was – a trip to discover some beautiful waterfalls, tucked away in the beautiful forests of North Carolina.

Autumn in the Blue Ridge Parkway

:: Destinations – North America – North Carolina

The Blue Ridge Parkway, extends more than 400 miles, from near New York in the north to Georgia in the south, is a wonderfully developed scenic drive.

Having heard such a lot about it, especially about the autumn colors, here, are pictures from my first (and second, and…) trip in the Fall of 2001. I enjoyed the trip more than I could imagine, and in these pages, you can see why. Enjoy your trip too!
