The Blue Ridge Mountains
are aptly named.
from the overlook
in the Chilhowee Recreation Area
of the Cherokee National Forest
on a beautiful Spring morning,
the lake below is Parksville Lake,
held by the dam below the Ocoee River.
The water reflects the deep blues
of the pure high mountain air
and sky and the trees
are filled with new buds
of fresh Spring leaves.
The tallest mountain in this scene
is Sugar Loaf Mountain.
The overlook is high
above the town of Benton
and is part of the Smoky Mountains
