Entering the Blue Ridge Parkway

I stepped into the Blue Ridge Parkway a mear 30 miles from Boone heading west.  My dream is to drive the whole of it.  Here are some of the pictures I took.

What you may not know is that I am in my sixties, I had an injured knee, and I went alone.  The last time I came, I was so frightened but not this time. I wasn't fool hardy either.  I stopped where there were people and other times I snapped pictures from my car.  There were spots that are narrow with no places to pull over and if you stop on the road you could cause an accident.  This is just the first part of my journey.

I loved every minute and I would do it again tomorrow if I could.
