Trees and Rock on the Craggy Gardens Trail during Summer

The rock outcroppings and winding flora and moss on the trail leading up to the Craggy Gardens Overlook off the Blue Ridge Parkway, outside Asheville in Western North Carolina. Sustainable travel should mean providing both residents and tourists with privilege to access sites with minimum effort and a responsibility to preserve the beauty for future generations and natural environment.
