  From an Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway
by grandmaR

When Bob and I were first married (in 1959) we drove down to his first duty station via the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is one of the slides I took, which I had digitized.

I found it hard to get pictures that were different enough from each other to be worth the film - such endless vistas of blue mountains and valleys.

Since then we've been on the coast or the beach on a sailboat, so we have not really been back except when the parkway was closed for the winter.

Directions: The Blue Ridge Parkway in NC goes from the NC/VA state line at mile 216.9 to the Great Smokey Mountains at mile 469 in Cherokee
