Boone Warnings and Dangers: 3 reviews and 4 photos
The High Country is beautiful. The only warning I will like to give is to keep eyes open on the narrow, winding country roads, which for the most part are single lane too. So many picturesque sights along the road can easily divert a driver’s focus. Besides, it seems to be the Motor bikers’ haven. They are there by the hundreds. One should take care of them too, because they are more vulnerable to a driver’s mistake. And then there is an ever-present danger of a deer caught in the headlights.
Be even more careful when it rains. Good point is that rains did not seem to last for more than 30 minutes or so at a stretch and they were not heavy.
We had our first driving accident in years on US 21 going towards Boone from Virginia, because of slippery road and rains. While negotiating a soft turn over a hill, our car skidded off the road and jumped over the roadside stones into someone’s garden. No one came out of the home for the visibility was almost zero. However, a car behind us stopped to see if we were all right. Nobody was hurt and car was all right too. My children kept joking about it, but even they admitted that it was a shocker. Normally there would have been a deep ravine or a gorge there. We were lucky that there was no ravine there, but a garden. We remembered the accident during the entire trip and even to this day. That small accident also made us decide to drop off Great Smokey Mountains National Park from our itinerary.
