"Excellent! Your site is probably the best Parkway site I've visited. I grew up in the 50's and 60's in Boone, NC and took every opportunity available to spend time in the Price Lake area after I received a driver's license. Keep up the good work and the Parkway be forever protected and preserved in it's natural state."
