Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway - Near Asheville North Carolina
We took a wonderful drive of about 100 miles down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Starting out in Asheville at our little bungalow we headed south down US-25 through the Biltmore Forest to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We stayed on it stopping many many times for photos along the way, reaching the highest point at 6053 Feet along the way. The road winds along the crest of the Blue Ridge through wondrous vistas; you just have to stop at every overlook along the way. Most are marked with location and elevation. At Wagon Road Gap, we picked up State Road 276 through the Pisgah National Forest (once mostly owned by the Biltmore Estate). Taking 276 North and then West to Waynesville then North on US-23 where we picked up Interstate 40 back to Asheville.
