North Carolina Vacation – Blue Ridge Parkway
On our second full day in Asheville, we drove southwest on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was cool and cloudy. We stopped at most of the overlooks. We left the parkway for a quick side trip to Looking Glass Falls.
We decided to do a short hike at Graveyard Fields to a waterfall. I will admit, I was a little cold here when we first got out of the car. The elevation is 5120 feet, and I was wearing shorts. We heard that the upper falls trail was closed, so we set out for the lower or “second” falls. More stairs were involved.
