Chris and I love where we live and one of the best things about our location is our close proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
It is often referred to as America’s favorite drive and understandably so. 469 miles of road that winds through Virginia and North Carolina provides a glimpse into nature, history and culture of the region.
Traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway offers the following:
- Some of the oldest mountains in the world
- Mount Mitchell – The highest mountain peak in the eastern United States
- New River – The oldest river in North America
- Linville Gorge – The deepest gorge east of the Grand Canyon
- Whitewater Falls – The highest waterfall east of the Rockies

On a recent trip off our mountain we traveled the Parkway and I snapped a few pictures to share with you today.
I never tire of these views and they are different as the seasons change. There is so much beauty in the mountain landscape and I am just in awe when I view the majestic scene in front of me.
If you are planning a trip to North Carolina or Virginia I would urge you to check out the Parkway. There is a lot to see and do along the Parkway and the BlueRidgeParkway.com website can help you plan your trip.
Have you ever traveled any part of the Parkway? I would love to hear about it in the comments section. Remember to Comment for a Cause for Bread of Life. Each comment this month means a 50 cent donation so come back often and leave me a comment or two.
