Cherokee, NC, is a wonderful place to visit. One of the main entrances to the Great Smoky Mountains NP is there, as is the start of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fall foliage can be spectacular, too. Recently I took part in a Casita Rally in Cherokee. It was a wonderful event, seeing old friends, meeting & making new ones. I snuck out early to capture a sunrise, was surprised to find the moon setting then, too, and got a wonderful sunset image.
