The Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina ~ Day 2

It was a bit rainy, but we thought we’d still go of a hike, since a little rain never hurt anyone ~ so off we went to Craggy Gardens and Crabtree Falls north of Asheville along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Well, it got a bit foggier as we climbed the Parkway, and this was the view at the Craggy Gardens trailhead, and since it’s a hike to a panoramic vista, we moved on.......

.....to this fog at the trailhead of Crabtree Falls. Yeah, bummer. And the driving wasn’t very fun, as there were times that we could only see the yellow line in the middle of the road, so the lesson learned was that when it’s raining in Asheville, it’s probably cloudy in the upper elevations of the Parkway.

We enjoyed a lunch of quiche and soup in the SwitzerlandCafé in Little Switzerland, and headed home.

Scott & I traveled Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge parkway for our honeymoon on motorcycles. We tent camped. Stopped at a difference campground every night, which meant unpacking, setting up, sleeping on a 1" foam mattress, then packing up the motorcycles in the morning for all day riding. It was an experience, but would have preferred less moving around. We hit fog so bad, I couldn't see Scott's rear light to follow him. White knuckle experience.
