you gotta add this
to your bucket list!
It's just some more of that "regular ol' grandeur!"
"Pose the camera, Theresa. Over the next rise will be a spectacular scenic shot!"
The Blue Ridge Parkway actually connects Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina. It is the longest unit of the US National Park System. Read what you want about touring this all-American road, I'm telling you that the prettiest time to visit is during the Fall. Even though we were a little past the peak season for tree-watching, there are not enough adjectives to describe the Creation of bright and multi-colored leaf shapes set against the rows of ridge-lined contours which horizon the beautiful Appalachian Mountains.
It's dark now. Do you know where your children are?

Near the turn of the century, the Wilderness Road had become the primary route from the east into the fertile regions of Kentucky. The Cumberland Gap National Historical Park is established to acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of Daniel Boone and his men, as well as the thousands and thousands of settlers who pulled and pushed wagons, rode horseback, and drove cattle through the Cumberland Gap on this section of the Wilderness Road.

[Ken 10/02/2016] Sometimes things just work out! It was certainly a "God Thing" that provided for our daughter, Mallory, and her husband, Devin, AND Ellie(!) to be in Knoxville, TN, at the same time that Deb and I were just across the state line in Wise, VA, on a SOWER project. We were all VERY EXCITED to take advantage of the special opportunity to see each other, and more so for Deb and I because we got a chance to see (and hold) our only grandchild (now 10 months old).
Let's do it again someday!
