If you want to see mountains, the Funnel Top View overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway is definitely the place to be. Here you have a sweeping, 180° view of range after range of mountains for miles. The view is so wide that the panoramic image below was made from nine photographs. Most panoramas I create are comprised of no more than five photos.

Unless you are looking to see a sunrise, visit in the afternoon for the best photos. This stop is facing directly east, and in the morning the sun will be shining in your face.
