Subject: Ride to Blowing Rock

I have attached some recent pictures of a trip to Blowing Rock NC Dave and I took this Thursday and Friday.

We left early Thursday and rode to Blowing Rock via RT 360 - 58 - 8- 89- I77- and 421 ( about 310 miles). Friday we traveled the Blue ridge parkway back to Roanoke ( 188 miles ), then Rt 460 & 360 home ( 325 miles total ).

The last shots are a market at Meadows of Dan, VA ( MP 178 on the parkway ) and Mabry Mill ( MP 176 ). One of the highlights was a biscuit with black cherry jam Friday morning at a spot along the parkway ( the jam was actually from Michigan ).

We decided to run the parkway north and stay over two nights, however, when we exited at Roanoke we were only 140 miles from home and decided to come on in.

It was a bucket list ride, but I am not going to record it that way because it would mean I would not be doing it again. In fact I can't wait to ride the parkway again.

Wish you all could have been there.
