#17 again...ok, for the first time...

#17: Blue Ridge Parkway

How many of you can claim the Blue Ridge Parkway as the way that you get from one end of town to the other? We've been privileged to enjoy America's most scenic highway on nearly a daily basis during our time in Asheville. Ever since I was a little girl I have loved the parkway. I recall family trips to the mountains and the terrifying feeling that we might drive off the road and into the clouds at certain points along the parkway. Here in Asheville you can go from the east part of town to the south of the city in mere minutes via the parkway. Head north and climb up to Mt. Mitchell in less than an hour. Great for getting around the city quickly and enjoying a lazy day driving and hiking in God's creation. Are you looking for a laid back vacation? Hop on the parkway in the Shenandoah valley or around Cherokee, NC and drive the full 469 miles of beauty at your leisure...sigh...
