Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina



No matter where you are on the "Blue Ridge Parkway" you will love every single moment. It travels through Virginia and North Carolina. Mom & I decided to take a bit of it before we headed on back to homelands. The part we took was lot of 35 mph and not very much quicker 45 mph. There are so many twists and turns ...I spent a lot of the time lower than 35 mph. The way were headed we were not getting home early than 6 pm, a quick part of the parkway and back to interstate driving. It was fun while it lasted & if there would have been more things blooming we may have stayed on even longer. It is always there & always FREE. 

The trip was made April 21-22. My Mom called me the next day to see if I had rested up ...I told her I was cleaning the deck, getting it ready to stain??!! What, how is the resting? she said to me. I had not had a good nights sleep in 2 nights. hey, I was too excited, a girls night away, too fun!! Beth ( :

It looks like a beautiful road to take slowly. I think when people speed they miss so much!!

Hello, Beth!
I love the Blue Ridge Parkway, I think it is lovely at all times of the year but in the Autumn, when the leaves change...it is incredible!
How pretty! This is on my bucket list..we almost made it one year, but not quite. Soon, I hope.

Love the parkway! Skyline Drive is very close to us, though, so we go there fairly often.
