Road trip 2012: blue ridge parkway
Road Trip 2012: The Blue Ridge Parkway aka really long out of the way scenic route
When I talked about the scenic route we took, it was the Blue Ridge Parkway. This road meets up with the Skyline Drive and takes you south. We were headed south so we thought we could see some beautiful views while on the drive rather than the sights off I-81 S which are borrrrrring! The sights were beautiful and we found the cutest sunflower field on the top of a mountain. What wasn't cute was going up those mountains pulling the camper. Also adding 2 1/2 hours of car time to our trip wasn't that cute either.
With that being said, I don't regret our little scenic detour. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a route I would like to explore farther. It extends south way farther than we went. For another trip then.
Have you driven the Blue Ridge Parkway? What are your thoughts and how far did you travel?
