Actually the Blue Ridge is a place where you and be IN the mountains, not just look up at them. The worst roads with out guard rails are in the East, not the West.Grades are steeper, turns quicker, and loaded with switchbacks. In a good part of the west there are long grades, more open traveling.due to the vastness of the Rockies.
