Blue Ridge Parkway, at 469 miles long, is one of the great drives to take in the US. It is a relaxing drive with stunning views of the rugged mountains and landscape of the Appalachian Highlands. Of course we didn't drive the whole distance but got a good taste of this wonderful area.
We stopped at one overlook and had some nuts and fruit and enjoyed the views. Got some pictures of some of the butterflies that were checking out the flowers in the bushes in front of us.
We continued to enjoy the views on this parkway where speeds are generally not more than 45 miles per hour.
