North Carolina – A Haiku

Cardinals, Dogwoods,

To be, rather than to seem

The one, Tar Heel State.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a quiet road with a speed of 45 m.p.h. that traverses 469 miles of the east coast from North Carolina to Virginia. It is a scenic marvel!

Here are a few photos I took along the way. I hope they inspire you to make a trip down this wonderful road.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a United States National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site that straddles the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are a division of the larger Appalachian Mountain chain. The border between Tennessee and North Carolina runs northeast to southwest through the centerline of the park. It is the most visited national park in the United States.

Here a  few photos I have taken within this magnificent park. I hope they inspire you to visit this beautiful place.

This flower has such a cool name. Black Eyed Susans are not as ugly as a black eye at all. I took this photo along a highway in North Carolina.


I took this photo in Rocky Mount, North Carolina at the local city park. This canoe is a piece of art that someone made out of sticks.
