There are several spots along the hike up the falls to stop and enjoy the surroundings (and allow your husband to torment you with the camera).
Crabtree Falls off Rt. 56
View from Crabtree Falls.
Some of the trees in the area are suffering some sort of blight.
These were taken near the top of Crabtree Falls. It's very peaceful and relaxing up there. We spent a lot of time just sitting there taking it all in.
And I was permitted to take a few pictures too. ;-)
Another view from Crabtree Falls.
The old Johnson Family Farm in Peaks of Otter. About a mile hike from the Blue Ridge Pkwy.
Bambis spotted on the walk back from Johnson's Farm.
