Autumn Drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway


Last Saturday was our car club’s costume drive, and we had an absolute blast. Our club met up in Asheville, lots of us in funny costumes.

More beauty on the other side.  Vibrant reds and golds, bronze and rust.

It was a grey day all day, not much sunshine so it was hard to get the colors on the wide mountain shot from the overlook where we stopped briefly.

We stopped for lunch at the Little Switzerland Inn’s Chalet Restaurant. Good food and incredible view out the back.
