Author: Nye Simmons

Master the Scenery of the Longest National Park!

The Blue Ridge Parkway runs 469 miles along Virginia and North Carolina’s Blue Ridge mountains—occasionally detouring to the area’s most scenic destinations. It’s a drive to be savored at leisurely pace through a land of stunning waterfalls, soaring mountains, picturesque forest, and Appalachian cultural and historical sites. A guide for this tour is not only necessary; it is invaluable.

A long-time friend of the Blue Ridge, Nye Simmons (author of The Greater Smoky Mountains Photo Guide: A Guide for Photographers) has written that guide. Filled with detailed information on the best hikes, scenic stops, waterfalls, and historic locations along the parkway, this is the ultimate guide to the Parkway, one of the most visited national parks in the United States.

Photographers’ notes and tips complement photographs and detailed descriptions of the park’s attractions. The guide includes information on lodging, way stations, side trips, hiking trails, and attractions of interest—making it ideal both for the time-pressed traveler who wants to hit the high points of the park, and for the photographer who has time to fully capture the scenic beauty of all the seasons on this amazing highway.
