I was always curious about why the Blue Ridge Mountains were named as such, that is until I finally saw the mountains at sunset and noticed that the layers of hills appeared to be varying hues of blue. It's an arrestingly beautiful sight and now I understand the allure of the area. Spend a weekend out in nature exploring the natural beauty of this area.
