There's much to see in western North Carolina. Much we missed while living in the SC Upstate: the southern portion of the Great Smoky Mountains; Cherokee; a scenic ride on a train from Bryson City; the Joyce Kilmer Forest; trails and waterfalls in Nantahala, and so much more. All of these are on our To Do list.
And while there, someday, I want to drive along the Cherohala Skyway. A scenic drive that stretches over forty miles from the far reaches of western North Carolina into the Cherokee Mountains of Tennessee. It's high on my western North Carolina wishlist, and something I'd love to do in the spring or the peak of fall.
Another fabulous way to experience the southern Appalachian Mountains. For more information, go to http://cherohala.org/index.html
