Blue Ridge Parkway connecting the Great Smoky Mtns. National Park and the Shenendoah Ntl. Park., forming Blue Ridge Mountains along the Apalachian Trail. I was fortunate to have a view like this for dinner every night on the patio, and during my morning runs while in Asheville, NC. The Blue Ridge Mtns. were featured in Last of the Mohicans, Hunger Games, and the lake scene from Dirty Dancing. The Great Smoky Mountains are also home to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.
