Blue Ridge Drive

I didn't spend a lot of time taking pictures on my recent road trip down the length of Skyline Drive, VA (109 miles) and the Blue Ridge Parkway (469 miles) in to NC. Here's a few highlighting the gentle beauty of the region in summer. Elevations anywhere from 3000' to 6500'. (For the record, it was 10-15º cooler than the rest of the low-lying South)

Sunset over Shenandoah from restaurant window
Cabin in the woods
Hiking through an evocative, primeval-feeling mist
Waterfall and Fallen Log
Tiered waterfall
Rustic roadside attraction
Dappled sunlight & shadow falling across rocky creek & rhododendron
Linville Falls, NC
Table Rock over looking Linville Gorge some 2000' below
If you ever have any questions why it's called the "Blue Ridge"
Mountains nearly reaching the belly of the sky

Beautiful shots, Jim H.

We used to visit Blue Ridge Drive when I was younger.
