Access the Blue Ridge Parkway from hwy 421 near Boone, NC and drive South to Grandfather Mountain
View from Blue Ridge Parkway overlook. Grandfather Mountain is located at the far right in the photo - behind the windblown trees. This recent photo was taken on a beautiful day with blue skies and white clouds that changed to darker clouds later in the day. The autumn leaves were in bright color and the parkway was full of visitors enjoying the show.
