Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina

January 23-24
When our dear friends offered to babysit Phillip for two days, we
spontaneously decided to head toward the mountains for a two-
day trip on the Parkway. We started out on the Parkway at
Roaring Gap/Cherry Lane, heading west toward Asheville.

The Parkway runs along the top of a continuous ridge, often making for
beautiful scenery on both sides of the road. Here is the beautiful scenery of my wife with a marvellous vista behind.

We stayed in a great hotel/resort at Blowing Rock, in the VIP suite due to terrific off-season discount rates.

For supper, we went out quite late to a nice little restaurant in downtown Blowing Rock.
The next day was also wonderful, except that we came across this sign much too often... Unfortunately, most of the parkway was closed the next day due to ice and snow patches. Nevertheless, the trip was scenic, as we still drove on many mountain rodes all the way to Asheville.
