Hello and welcome to part 15 of our journey through North Carolina.
As we continued along the Blue Ridge Parkway climbing higher the cloud cover got so thick it was difficult seeing what was in front of us. I guess this happens when you mix rain, warm temperatures and an elevation of 6000-feet plus above sea level. What we could see through the fog was truly beautiful but these conditions mixed with narrow roads we were sharing with lots of bicyclist was certainly a formula for accident waiting to happen. Looking at the maps it was time to break from the Blue Ridge Parkway and head down some country roads as we began singing that John Denver classic song “Country Roads”. Yup, we are silly and childlike… but isn’t this what life is about… besides, it’s a great tune.
Well this is it for today. We hope you come back and see how the trip unfolds as we share more of USA Through Our Eyes. Until then be safe.
