National Geographic

In the last few months one of my favorite magazines, National Geographic, has had articles about two of my favorite Appalachian landmarks: Mount Airy in North Carolina and the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina. Not only were the articles pretty fair (especially the former of the two), they framed up some really wonderful photos. Well, these articles brought to mind another National Geographic venture (specifically from their Traveler magazine) - the "Discover Appalachia" article, map, and accompanying website (sponsored by every tourist agency in the region, it should be added).

Needless to say, I became intrigued - what other features on the Hills has ol' NG put together? Thus began the "web-searches."

I was pleasantly surpised to find that there were far too many hits for me to link even a tiny fraction of them. So, after about three hours of skimming and rummaging, I came up with this "must-read" list. And you must read them. Or risk failing the quiz. Which I've written for you. Secretly.
