walk beside me
--Albert Camus (1913-1960) French writer
The trail to the Roan Mountain High Bluff Overlook. The road leading up to the top of the Roan (which includes the Cloudland Site, Rhododendron Garden and Trail to the High Bluff Overlook) is still closed and will remain closed for the rest of the year. It's supposed to be reopened in time for the June 2011 Rhododendron Festival. So if you go, you'll have to park at Carver's Gap and either hike up to the Balds (which is an amazing hike) or hike up the Roan to the Cloudland site (which actually isn't as steep a hike as you might imagine).
