The Blue Ridge Mountians



Summer is the best time to see the 'blue' of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Blue Ridge Mountains stretch from North Georgia all the way to Pennsylvania where they eventually peter out (become smaller and smaller until they simply disappear).



The Blue Ridge Mountains were named by early American settlers who journeyed west from the Coast of North Carolina. The mountains have a blue haze that seems to hover over them-making them appear a… Continue

Appalachian Vocabulary Test 8



Time for this month's Vocabulary Test. This month's words are:
