Scenic Sunday # 70: Yellow Face Overlook


The view from Yellow Face Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway. October 25, 2009.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

Even though I no longer live in the mountains of North Carolina, I still like to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway whenever possible.  The picture above was taken three weeks ago at the Yellow Face Overlook east of Maggie Valley.  No wonder some people claim the Blue Ridge Parkway is the most scenic byway in the country.

    Oh yes it is a very beautiful area. I bet people are pulled over to the sides of the road taking pictures a lot. I would have a hard time leaving an area like that.

    I really like this photo, and I’m so jealous that you can to places like this. Perhaps I should re-consider and apply for a university in North Carolina next semester? 🙂
