North Carolina

Springtime in the Smokies - Dogwood in bloom along U.S. 441 in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  In the distance can be seen the Chimney Tops.

Newfound Gap Highway Through The Great Smoky Mountains National Park
This is the largest national park in Eastern America and straddles the range which forms the boundary between North Carolina and Tennessee.  Within its borders there are many mountain peaks over a mile high, deep ravines, precipitous cliffs, waterfalls and numerous mountain streams.

Beautiful Maggie Valley seen from the top of Waterrock Knob - Western North Carolina.  On the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Maggie Valley is fast becoming a leading resort center of the region.  The incline to Ghost Town on Ghost Mountain may be seen on the left in the middle distance.
