The Blue Ridge Mountains

The Blue Ridge Mountains are a part of the larger Appalachian Mountains range. The mountain range is located in the eastern United States, and extends 550-mile southwest from southern Pennsylvania through Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. 

Within the Blue Ridge province are two major national parks – the Shenandoah National Park in the northern section, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the southern section. The eight national forests include George Washington and Jefferson, Cherokee, Pisgah, Nantahala and Chattahoochee. Source: Wikipedia

Why Blue?

There are a LOT of trees in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and they’re responsible for that dreamy blue haze on the horizon.
