Road trip to the High Country

Boone visit by channel 10WBIR Channel 10 in Knoxville, Tenn. is renovating its studios. Thus, the staff of "Live at Five" was forced out of the office and into the great wide open. And there's no place wider or grander than the High Country. Yesterday the station spent almost an hour broadcasting live from Blowing Rock, with features taped all across the area.

They interviewed residents and explored several amenities. Among the topics: local cheese, local wine, Doc Watson, Blue Ridge Parkway, original Mast General Store, Forest Gump Curve, frescos, fly fishing, zip lining and much more. They also bragged on the nice weather. Says one reporter, "The high never gets above 79 degrees." Actually it does, but not too often.
