The Blue Ridge Mountains
Here's Nan after her first time driving on the Parkway and at her first overlook. She was smiling real big, so I think she likes it.
One of many old cabins still in pretty good shape.
The Rhododendrons are blooming.

We ended up spending the night in Mount Airy.
Mount Airy is Andy Griffith's hometown, and the town Mayberry was modeled after. The only thing I can say about that is, "She ain't what she used to be!" And you really don't want to camp at the Walmart there on Saturday night!
Do you know what kind of fence that is in front of the Puckett cabin?
There are a lot of fences on the Parkway. Time for a fence lesson for those not sure:

This dog was actually posing while his owner took pictures, so I took one too.
Next hurdle leaped when we found that Nan's 32' RV fit nicely in a pull-through at the National Park CG. Nan purchased her Golden Age pass and is happy to get 50% off the camping fee.
After we settled in our campsite, we visited Mabry's Mill.
And were entertained with mountain music all afternoon.

And dancers too.
Want to listen to some toe-tapping music and dancing? I'll leave you with this video.
