  • One of the most beloved parks in the country, Blue Ridge Parkway, called America's Most Scenic Drive, is a 469-mile roadway that climbs the ridgelines and peaks of the Appalachian Mountains between Shenandoah National Park and the Great Smoky Mountains. Historic sites such as gristmills, bridges, and one-room schoolhouses exist along the Parkway, and 350 miles of trails crisscross its length, connecting with the Appalachian Trail and even older pathways that wind through forests of hardwood, evergreen, and the endangered hemlock. Pat and Chuck Blackley's beautiful photography immortalizes for posterity the essence of this culturally rich and visually stunning land.
