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..........
