Post Your Pictures of the Blue Ridge Mountains...

Someone should start a Blue Ridge Parkway picture thread.

How about if we expand it beyond the Blue Ridge Parkway and include any of your pictures in the Blue Ridge, Smoky, and Appalachian Mountains?

So, if no one else has started it, I'll begin with this one I took last year on Grandfather Mountain...
