'And the Photos!'
I have been a subscriber to your magazine for a number of years now. It was
a gift from my best friend. At first I
liked it simply to look at the stunning
photos. But each year your magazine
gets better and better. The articles are
fun to read and informative, especially the historical ones or the "folksy"
ones. I love reading about places to
travel too. And the photos! So gorgeous. I finally decided I needed to
write and tell you just how great your
magazine is. My friend lives near the
Blue Ridge Parkway. I live in California and dream of hiking and driving
the Blue Ridge area.
May I also say one of the articles
that was particularly great was the
one on (as I recall) the barn quilts
where you interviewed a gay couple-
that was awesome to read in this age
of often derogatory remarks on such
couples.
Thank you so much!

'How Impressive'
I happened to pick up a copy of Blue
Ridge Country at the St. Andrews branch
of the Richland County Library in Columbia, South Carolina, and just wanted to comment on how impressive the
magazine is.
It's extraordinary and a great testament to the richness of the geographic
region it reports on. Congratulations to
all of the editorial staff and contributors.
Best wishes for all future success.

Columbia, South Carolina
