Blue Ridge Parkway – Day 4 & Skyline Drive – Day 1
May 14, 2010
Yesterday we drove 115 miles, 60 miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway and 55 miles on Skyline Drive…all in the clouds/fog! Skyline Drive and the Shenandoah National Park begin where the Blue Ridge Parkway ends.
The entire journey my maximum vision was from about 50 feet to about 100 feet which meant from 20 to 35 miles per hour the whole day. A very tiring day of driving. 5.5 hours of driving to do 115 miles.
I’m sure the Shenandoah National Park is very pretty…if I could just see it!
The only place with no clouds/fog was inside of a tunnel.
The mystery flower from yesterday’s Blog is a Mountain Laurel which was identified in the Shenandoah National Park brochure.
The fog/clouds abated only slightly just about the time we arrived at our campsite.
Here’s the official government website link…
Here’s a Wikipedia informational link…
Today we continue in a Northeasterly direction.
