Blue Ridge Drive July 2014

7 Comments

We did a drive with our car club yesterday.  The weather was just perfect, a beautiful sunny day in the 70s.  The recent rains had cleared the air and the views were spectacular off the Blue Ridge Parkway.   We met in a parking lot near the entrance to Pisgah Forest.

This was a Progressive Drive, a fun drive that has a lot of stops.  With each stop, the passengers change cars, so everyone gets some time with a lot of different members of the club.  It is a way to have some social interaction while enjoying a drive.

We stopped at the highest point on the parkway for a couple of pictures.  I was pretty far back in the car line by this photo.  We had 14 cars participating in the drive.

I just had to try to get a couple of pictures as we drove, the mountains were so gorgeous. We drove a total of 58 miles, so there were lots of beautiful views. This one is a bit blurry.

This one came out better.

We stopped and had a picnic lunch near Mount Pisgah. It was such a beautiful day, I don’t think anyone wanted to go home!

There will be another drive in a couple of weeks to an Amish farm.  I’ll share that with you, too.

  2. Sounds like you had a fun time. Hubby and I spent some time driving the Parkway one spring. My favorite part of that drive was visiting The Biltmore Estate. Gorgeous!

  3. Which is your car?

  4. Love it, thanks Carole

  5. This looks like a lot of fun. My hubby would love the club and I’m missing the mountains. (transplant from TN to IN)
