The Blue Ridge Parkway
---A Journey through the Old Dominion

For over 60 years, the Blue Ridge Parkway has combined modern travel with the splendid of nature.  Unlike the thousands of miles of superhighways that grace this nation, the 469 mile parkway purposely avoids alterning the landscape allowing visitors to enjoy the majestic beauty of the Blue Ridge in North Carolina and Virginia.  Linking two popular national parks, Shenandoah and Great Smokey Mountains, the route goes from foothills and farmlands to heights of over 5000 feet.  No matter how high or low the elevation, the Parkway is full of endless and spectacular views, hiking trails, and an infinite number of natural posibilites.  This photo essay will explore the various overlooks and attractions along the Parkway within Virginia.
