Continuing with our Virginia leg of the Blue Ridge Parkway.....
If you remember, we started our trip in Charlottesville where the parkway begins (it's the Skyline Drive north of there). That was back in the spring just before the parkway opened to their seasonal visitors. We got to Roanoke and then storms chased us home.
Now, we decided it was time to finish that trip. Sunday afternoon we drove to Roanoke and early Monday morning we hit the Parkway and started our journey to Mabry's Mill. What gorgeous scenery awaited us.
Here are some pictures to entice you to take such a trip. (I'll save the Mabry Mill post for a little later on).

Here I am at the Roanoke River Bridge
I love the stone bridges.

Leslie headed across the overlook parking lot looking for me. ME? I was busy making pictures!!
I love the old rail fences
That was just a taste of the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. Wouldn't it be gorgeous in the Fall?
