Hello all,

I'm writing a story highlighting the best views in all 50 states for an upcoming issue, and I'd love your input. I need nominations for the best views in each of the Southern states. Here are a few guidelines:

1. The view must be one you have to hike to (roadside overlooks don't count).
2. The viewpoint should be an exact location, not just a general area.
3. Please include a brief description of how to reach the viewpoint (i.e., which trails to take). If you have a GPS track or UTM point for the viewpoint, include that too!

Do any favorite views come to mind? If so, feel free to email nominations my way as soon as possible--and please share this with any fellow hiker friends who might also want to nominate a favorite view or two for this article!

Thanks for your help!
