Richland Balsam Trail sep2009
This is a small trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. It's a spruce-fir forest without any scenic views, but worthwhile elements regardless. The entire trail was surrounded by the buzzing of flies, and it smelled like Christmas trees (we'd frequently get Fraser firs as xmiss treez). I spent the whole trail in my childhood imagination and that made it a worthwhile trip.
