Winding Road

The Blue Ridge Parkway is 469 miles of views. Construction began 80 years ago, and was finally finished in 1987. Though it is best known for a variety of spectacular vistas, I also enjoy the subtle beauty of its forests through the seasons. This is the current summer foliage on a stretch of the road right in Asheville. Though surrounded by the city along this part of the parkway, it sometimes looks like a wilderness.
