Traveling north from Charleston to Johnson City, Tenn. is a straight shot up I-26 that passes through Columbia and Spartanburg in S.C., Saluda and Asheville in N.C., and then across the Smokies into Eastern Tennessee. Needless to say, the close up views of these mountain peaks is superb, despite the fact that very little leaf color change had begun, and the gurgling streams like the Nolichucky River that  often charted the course for these roads are in easy view. After a pre-conference stop at Jones Hunt Preserve, the SouthEastern Outdoor Press Association schedule included visits to a fossil museum, local dining spots, the South Holston River Lodge and a lakeside day to test out kayaks and other fishing equipment. It was just five years ago when SEOPA visited E. Tenn. for a conference in Gatlinburg, and 'Rocky Top' seems to be a popular choice for outdoors enthusiasts since it offers a large variety of outdoor story options!
