Blue Ridge Parkway


tl;dr: I have left hot Georgia behind and am freezing on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

My narrative is suffering. Perhaps that is because traveling by vehicle is fundamentally boring. But at least I can share pictures.

I’ve decided to head north until I see fall colors. I usually miss them for one reason or another, but not this year. I’m taking the scenic route. Blue Ridge Parkway is quite the road, especially if you like the smell of other people’s break pads.

As soon as I hit the Parkway the temperature dropped and the clouds moved in. There were many points were I couldn’t see anything. I hiked to the top of Pisgaw Mountain and was presented with a view of absolutely nothing.
