Here we go…after hacking my way south through the forests of roads…AND seeing a bear! WTF is that, a dog? NOPE. As soon as it starts running, I know it is a black bear. It exits stage right up a hill, blink, gone.
There are also some interesting structures this way…
I get to the start of Skyline Drive. Some hoser in a nice Corvette was taking photos at the sign, so I blast past, and think “fuck that”, pull a U-turn (I’m getting very good at those) and go back. I get shots of him and his wife, and he returns the favor
Speed limit is 35mph, jeeebus. Baby won’t go 55, how can I do this?
sure enough, I get a warning for 48 in a 35. The nice officer said to try to keep it about 40, aaaiiiight?
It is Gorgeous! However, fall isn’t fully here yet. I will have to live with the ordinary beauty…
Skyline Drive leads us south to…the 469 mile long
Blue Ridge Parkway
