Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina (10/2016)

A few weeks ago, I remember reading a quote about how fall leaves are the spring flowers of autumn. It fits, don't you think?

Justin and I attempted to finish driving the Blue Ridge Parkway this year and failed. So far we've driven from just north of the Great Smoky Mountains all the way to Virginia and then through the Shenandoah Park skipping most of what Virginia has to offer. Maybe next time?

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a 469 mile roadway or driveable "park" connecting the Great Smoky Mountains in the west to the Shenandoah National Park in the east. Granted a lot more thought was put into the design of this road than I'm covering in this post, but the general idea is that this is one of the most scenic roads in the US and is particularly beautiful in the fall.

While the Blue Ridge Parkway can be a lot of fun to drive, just be aware that it is no easy feat completing the drive. Apparently, in my experience, four solid days (or two weekends) is not quite enough time, even stopping only infrequently at the various overlooks. Also, I recommend getting a book like The Photographer's Guide to the Blue Ridge Parkway if you attempt the drive.

Are you seeing beautiful fall leaves yet where you are?
