Blueridge Parkway!! (56k beware)

It was a beautiful day Saturday, si i decided to take Sara for a little drive and on a picnic. We drove up to the Blueridge parkway which is 15 minutes from that house. we stayed on it for about 70 miles I think. we ened up stopping at Doughton's park and i surprised her with her picnic she's been begging me for. it was nice, we had the picnic right at the edge of a mountain. beautiful view! i did get a few pics of the truck even though it was dirty, i didnt have time to wash her last weekend.

Are you sure about that? I was under the impression it was only in NC and VA.

Here's a map that shows the entire thing, it ends in NC.
