It was a beautiful winter day; perfect for an outing. We drove down Rt. 151 through Nelson County to the Virginia Blue Ridge Railway Trail along the Piney River.
We turned around shortly past the one-mile mark and made our way back to the car. From there we continued to Rt. 29 South, and then turned on Rt. 60 West. This ultimately took us up the mountain to the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance near Buena Vista.
It was cold on the Parkway–late afternoon temperatures were in the low 30s–and there was plenty of ice on the rocks.
Driving slowly and stopping frequently to savor the views, we reached the north end of the Blue Ridge Parkway at sunset.
We’re so thankful to have these special places within an easy drive–and doubly thankful that Wayne has the (restored) health to be able to enjoy them. <3
Until next time,
Sharon & Wayne
