Up, down around and up and down and around agin describes the whole day on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.
We began in Asheville, NC and no sooner were on the Parkway when we stopped at both parkway headquarters and a fabulous Appalachian arts and crafts shop and exhibit, and ended the day in Meadows of Dan, VA, a peculiar name for a town.
Traffic was practically non existent. We saw more bikes and motorcycles than cars. What a pleasant ride with maximum speed limit of 45 mph, but with all the ups, downs and arounds, we probably averaged 30 mph with the RV downshifted in 3rd and 4th speed nearly all the time.
The highway design and layout is superb and very well maintained with dozens of vista lookouts Couldn't see vistas because of the low overcast...most of the mountains were in the clouds), picnic areas and historic sites.
We spent the night in Meadows of Dan RV Park.
