Drive any narrow winding road linking the base of the Blue Wall to its top, and the world is a lush green jungle where trees vie for a few open feet of sky, and vines weave through tree tops, their wandering tendrils whipped into submission by passing traffic. Along the way orange daylilies mark the location of long-gone homesteads, and the ditches are dotted with yellow flowers standing above the grass on strongly fiborous stems. Steep mountainsides angle down to meet the road on one side, and deep narrow gullies plunge to hidden creeks on the other. This is not open-sky country. It is close and tight and maybe slightly terrifying to visitors unaccustomed to such luxurious green.~K
