The wild blueberries are ripe for the picking along the Blue Ridge.
The Blue Ridge Parkway is now closed from Milepost 375, a few miles north of Asheville, to Milepost 355 at N.C. 128/Mount Mitchell State Park, according to the National Park Service.
Just in time for the busy spring tourist season, the Blue Ridge Parkway will reopen a stretch of roadway connecting the popular Craggy Gardens and Mt. Mitchell State Park areas.

Time-lapse video shots looking down from Craggy Gardens on oceanic clouds depict their energy and feel as they roil and flow up against the mountainsides and sometimes over the ridges. Audio track by Dep.
