If you've never visited the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway you really need to make the trip. 469 miles from Virgina to North Carolina and worth every bit of the most beautiful view east of the Mississippi. You can see miles upon miles of some of Gods greatest work. When you're on the Parkway it's as though you're in another country, it's so peaceful and relaxing. We drove with the windows down to experience the fresh mountain breeze and fragrance of honeysuckle in the air. I needed a break from the hustle and bustle life can bring every now and then. This trip made me realize how I've missed being one with nature.
