Another overlook along the Blue Ridge Parkway (there are hundreds of them along the way). Trees are everywhere.  In spring, Tuliptrees, Serviceberry, and others produce showy blooms.  In fall, leaves burst into color.  Dogwood, Sourwood, and Blackgum turn deep red.  Tuliptree and Birches turn yellow, Sassafras a vivid orange, and Red Maples add a multicolored brilliance.  Mountain Ash berries turn bright red and provide food for wintering birds.  Finally Oaks put on a dash of russet and maroon.  Evergreens include Virginia Pine, White Pine, Hemlock, Spruce, and Fir.
