One Of The Oddest Geological Wonders, Looking Glass Rock, Is Located Right Here In North Carolina

Nothing beats a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. You’re suspended within the rugged mountain terrain, cruising high above sea level and treated to beautiful views throughout your journey. Yet, sometimes you might see something that catches your eye. For one, when you reach the Looking Glass Rock Overlook, you might be equal parts amazed and slightly confused to see a giant, dome-rock formation in the middle of tree-covered mountains.
