This is the North Fork French Broad River along State Road 215, about 7 miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway. From the boulder’s ledge, I’m looking downstream, and south. All precious fluids passing thru this jam-up spot course due south 10 miles to Rosman, where the River changes its mind with an eastward u-turn bend into the next County, eventually aiming due north thru Asheville, and onward northwest slicing the great mountain barrier at Hot Springs and into the Tennessee Valley. It's never disappointing here.
