About the Author

Randy Johnson is an authority on the Blue Ridge Parkway and an award-winning photojournalist.

He was a trail design consultant for the Parkway's Tanawha Trail and worked to mesh the private and park service trails that today link Grandfather Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway. For decades, his articles and photos have brought the four-season Appalachian outdoor scene to readers of national magazines and newspapers. He is a widely published travel writer and former editor of the country's most-award-winning airline magazine. Johnson is also author of Blue Ridge Parkway Pocket Guide.
