Since there was plenty of daylight left, we decided to take a relaxing and leisurely drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We began our drive from milepost 469 just off of US-441. The scenic drive took us past views of Stony Mountain Ridge, Barnett Knob, Big Witch Gap, Bunches Bald, Wolf Laurel Gap, Plott Ridge, Waterrock Knob, Browning Knob, Woodfin Falls, and Balsam Gap. We stopped randomly to take pictures of along the parkway. The scenery was especially beautiful as dusk was taking over the horizon. We turned off of the Blue Ridge Parkway at the Balsam Gap area onto the Great Smoky Mountains Expressway (US-23/US-74) and headed back to our accommodations near Asheville.
