This detailed guidebook is laid out from MP 0.0 at Rockfish Gap to MP 469 on the banks of the Oconaluftee River at the border with the Great Smokies. The Parkway designers had a grand plan — “Jewels on a string of beads” was the concept, with points of great interest spread along the length of this great scenic drive. For lovers of the outdoors of all types, and especially photographers, there are then target rich areas of exceptional appeal that offer iconic scenes. This book guides you through those, as well as the hidden jewels not so immediately apparent, both on and off the Parkway. This IS the guide I wish I had when I first started to visit and photograph the Parkway.
