Blue Ridge Parkway Waterfalls

On a recent road trip, hubby and I spend two nights in Boone, North Carolina. The town of Boone has easy access to the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway.  We planned on visiting and hiking to as many waterfalls we could fit into our visit. I am sharing photos of the Upper and Lower Linville Falls and photos of the Crabtree Falls.

The trail to Crabtree is described as moderate, parts were difficult walking a rocky trail.

This is from the overlook called Chimney View  of the Lower and Upper Linville Falls. If you look closely you can see the people at the Upper Falls.

From Erwin’s view overlook we could see the river below the falls.

Roadtrip…Blue Ridge Parkway

We recently returned from a road trip to North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Parkway. A scenic 460 mile drive through Virginia and North Carolina.  We spent one night in Staunton Virginia, 2 nights in Boone North Carolina and 3 nights in Asheville North Carolina.

The following images are photos from the first day in Virginia and on the Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park.   During our 6 days, we hiked to various waterfalls, rocky trails and saw beautiful scenic views.
