While driving around the Blue Ridge Parkway and other areas of North Carolina we can admire the scenery and local wildlife. The landscapes are truly beautiful, and some of the views you can get of the mountains in the distance can take your breath away.

I’m guessing this is just another sign of trying to keep people from doing things you’d think they’d have enough common sense to not do in the first place. As Robert Heinlein said ‘the problem with common sense is it’s not all that common.’
