      The Southern Appalachian Mountains includes the Blue Ridge province and parts of four other physiographic provinces. The Blue Ridge physiographic province is a high, mountainous area bounded by several named mountain ranges (including the Unaka Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains) to the northwest, and the Blue Ridge Mountains to the southeast. @article{osti_, title = {Stacked thrust sheets of the Blue Ridge and Piedmont provinces, northeast Georgia and western South Carolina}, author = {Nelson, A E and Horton, Jr, J W and Clarke, J W}, abstractNote = {Geologic mapping in the Greenville, South Carolina-Georgia, 1/sup 0/ x 2/sup 0/ quadrangle indicates that the eastern Blue Ridge Province and Inner Piedmont belt of this region.

Geologic evidence suggests that parts of North Carolina-including the oldest known rocks in the state ( billion years old), located in the western Blue Ridge Mountains-were once at the boundaries of plates, although the creation of new crust in the Atlantic Ocean has moved the state's position to the middle of the North American plate.

The Blue Ridge Mountains are a physiographic province of the larger Appalachian Mountains range. The mountain range is located in the eastern United States, and extends miles southwest from southern Pennsylvania through Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia.

This province consists of northern and southern physiographic regions, which. lleghany County is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of northwestern North Carolina, adjoining the Virginia state line. The county was organized in from Ashe County.

The name "Alleghany" comes from an Indian word meaning "good river." Alleghany County is without a doubt one most beautiful places in America, with square miles of forested ridges, round stony peaks, and.

The northwest counties of North Carolina are rich in natural areas waiting to be explored and enjoyed.
