Steven McBride

The Mount Rogers area, specifically Rhododendron Gap, has incredible alpine views, awesome rocks, and of course the colorful wildflowers.

Will Harlan

The hard-earned views from Thunderhead Mountain in the Smokies are worth the effort.

Harrison Shull

The Mount Cammerer fire lookout in the northern Smokies. The long, steep hike weeds out the crowds, and the unique lookout tower provides breathtaking panoramic views.

Charles Leonard

Main Street, Damascus, during Trail Days. Who knew a trail could host such a party?

Jeff Zimmerman

Round Bald near Carver’s Gap for its spectacular 360-degree views. It’s a photography wonderland.

The beautiful 100-mile stretch that follows the ridgelines of Shenandoah National Park.
