Roan Mountain

Everyone who lives in East Tennessee knows about Roan Mountain. It has the highest peak (6,327ft) in the area. The Appalachian Trail passes its peak right at the Tennessee-North Carolina Border. Every year there is a Roan Mountain Festival which celebrates the Rhododendron blossoming time, in the latter part of June. In 1972, we went there for the first time as a family, without anyone else, just the four of us and our dog, Princess. It was a glorious day. We enjoyed this place many, many times over the years. Every time, we had the same feeling - that we were lucky to live in such a beautiful place.
