The Ancient Forest At Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest In North Carolina Is Right Out Of A Storybook
What could be more enchanting than a virgin forest named after a poet with a poem titled “Trees”? Deep within the Nantahala Forest in Western North Carolina lies a 3,800-acre tract of land with trees that have never been logged in the history of the U.S. This rare spot has one of the largest contiguous tracts of virgin forest east of the Mississippi. The giant trees and lush scenery make it like something out of a storybook.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
