Pretty place. My wife and I spent 6 years in Tennessee and we used to go up to Gatlinburg/Cades Cove on the weekends.

It was a really great trip for me.  I've not been in the mountains in many years.  It was refreshing to see the world from up there again.

You are right 3-D the work involved to make plans, preparation, flight and edit the video is incredible and with today's fast life / work it's even harder.

You live in a Beautiful Area Buddy ! I Love Nature myself, those mountains would be a dream to me to trek.

As a local Asheville pilot, I have to pass on that you should be very careful flying off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  It's a National Park and rangers will fine you and even take your drone.  I fly in the mountains around here all the time, because of course I do, the mountains are amazing, but beware ranger danger!

Yeah, I was aware of that while driving through, and was kind of disappointed that I wasn't going to be able to fly. We were talking about it in the visitor center and a Ranger actually told me i could take a "brief flight for photos as long as there were no objections from the people on the pinnacle"

I rushed up right after that before he could change his mind! - of course rushing up that trail (for someone out of shape) required a brief break once I arrived.

Cades Cove has been added to the list for my next visit back to Asheville.
I've heard it was beautiful!
