In the fall of last year (can you believe that 2011 is now "last year"?), hubby and I took a trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway. We started at the beginning of the Skyline Drive in Front Royal, VA, and ended, 4 days later, in Cherokee, NC at the end of the Parkway. What a fabulous trip! Hard to believe it took us 4 days to drive 565 miles, but we stopped so often to take photos that our average speed was about 15 MPH!
The first day started out very foggy, and I'll admit I was disappointed, thinking that we would miss things in the fog. I am sure there were things we did miss, but what we saw instead more than made up for that lack.
These first ones were in trees above our heads. This final one was at ground level, and only seen because we had to stop for some road construction. You never know what you may find, if you only keep your eyes open and look for the wonder!
