|Subject: Blue Ridge for Lorraine from Australia|
Debbie mentioned to Lorraine, the Australian Traveler,
about going to the Blue Ridge Mountains. While the
main highways and the local roads are usually open,
the actual Blue Ridge Parkway closes for the winter.
A phone call to the Ranger Station would be a good
thing, around the end of March, to see if access is
available at that time. Also, March is a time of
occasional freak snowstorms. Our temperatures this
winter, predicted to be cold, are just that.
.......Blue Ridge Mountains, Smoky Mountains, and the Appalachian Trail could all lead you southward and are all places of extraordinary beauty..........
