Visiting Roan Mountain


WEBTV, Atlanta’s channel 2, posted  a story this week entitled “40 Things Every Southerner Ought to Do.”  Coming in at #16 was Roan Mountain.  “The Smokies have great vistas,” said the writer, “but what you’ll see from Roan Mountain, astride Tennessee and North Carolina, will top them all — especially if you visit in June when the rhododendrons are in bloom.”  I couldn’t have said it better.

PS – If you need a place to stay, check out Roan Mountain Bed and Breakfast :).
