Brief Directions

I would estimate the overlook location for this photo as being between the 250 and 275 mile-posts on the Parkway. I didn't think to record the location any more precisely.


Driving home to South Carolina after attending a wedding in Ohio, I decided to take the long way, by exiting I-77 at the Fancy Gap exit in VA and take the Blue Ridge Pkwy to where it intersects with I-26. It was a beautiful day, so I didn't mind adding a few hours of travel that included a 175 mile stretch along the Parkway. I stopped at several overlooks to take photos, I didn't mind at all, adding the extra 4 hours of travel time to my journey home.
