…Once again we rode on a portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I love riding the parkway because it’s 469 miles with no stop signs. The parkway is used by cars, motorcyclist, bicyclists and hikers. It’s really a great way to see beautiful mountains and vistas.

Jan and I plan to ride the parkway from Cherokee, NC to the Shenandoah National Park sometime in the near future.
