    Where's the nearest scenic overlook to New Orleans?

    Yeah, I'm in the flattest city in the **** country. That's probably why I want to climb a mountain or something. I'm not married, so I don't have anyone to tell me "no", so where can I go to find something like this:



    None of those guys are me, obviously. That's Charlie's Bunion in GSMNP; is that the closest place? It's only like a 9 hour drive, I think.

    The ozarks are closer, but not as spectacular as GSMNP.

    Or a plane ticket from New Orleans to Denver is only $220. Just go west from Denver to the mountains. You could have a very affordable vacation.
