See a lovely sunset view of the Blue Ridge Mountains (a subset of the Appalachian Mountains) at Chimney Rock Mountain Overlook (Milepost 44.9, elevation 2485 feet) on the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Buena Vista, Virginia, USA. Local trees release hydrocarbons into the atmosphere and create a characteristic blue haze on pristine days as seen in this photo; but more often a white or gray haze obscures distant views due to air pollution. The scenic 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway connects Shenandoah National Park (in Virginia) with Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina, following crestlines and the Appalachian Trail.
