After 3 activity filled days with our friends, it was time to get on the road back to TN. And there's no better road to go on than the Blue Ridge Parkway!
I love all the pull outs and how each one has a sign or two.
(OK folks... this is how you do a selfie when you don't have a smart phone!)
There were not many people driving that afternoon.
"Bad Fork" overlook - 3350' elevation.
Hominy Valley overlook - elevation 3980.
Buck Spring Gap - elevation 4980.
Buck Spring Gap from the other side of the road.
Isn't the bud interesting?
Funnel Top overlook - elevation 4925.
Missed the sign on this one. It is a huge 'bald', probably granite.
Cruising along enjoying the scenery.
I explored several outcrops like this one. Beautiful stone!
A wild blueberry bush. It's just getting started and the blueberries here are at peak!
One of many tunnels along the route.
Pretty, aren't they?
This is our favorite photo op. We've taken a photo of every auto we have driven on the Parkway.
After we left the Blue Ridge Parkway, our driving adventure continued...
