Blue Ridge Mountains - North Carolina

The Blue Ridge Mountains get their name from a characteristic blue haze seen when observing the range from a distance.  Tall peaks and hidden valleys offer surreal views of a truly wild and natural landscape.  This album is a selection of shots which attempt to capture the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  Locations photographed include Mount Mitchell, Linville Falls, Lakes Powhatan and Tahoma, the city of Asheville, and several sections of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
