Another Day Along the Parkway........

What a great day we've had today on our trip.  We left Spruce Pine Campground about 9:00 am, hopped on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and headed north.  We stopped at Linville Falls, and hiked to the upper falls.  We stopped for photo opportunities.  We even stopped for a great picnic lunch underneath the shade trees.  Once again we only drove about 100 miles along the BRP.

After we left the BRP, we headed to West Jefferson, NC for a grocery store stop, fuel and ice stop, then it was onto New River State Park for the night.  Since we didn't plan on going anywhere else today, we didn't even bother to unhook.  Just plugged in, put down the back stabilizers, set-up the EZ-up, and hung out for the afternoon.  It was warm (well ok hot) but none of us melted. 

My cousin Sharon did get some bad news regarding a camping friend, so you'll have to check her Postcards blog to find out. 

We grilled onions, and salmon.  Fixed a salad and nuked some veggies for dinner.  It was all very yummie. 

Here are a few pictures for you to see of our day.......

Tomorrow, we will hop back on the BRP, and go as far as Mabry Mill on the BRP.  From there we will head over toward Stuart, VA to spend two nights at Fairy Stone State Park. 

Thanks for checking in today and until next time, stay safe out there.....-R,T,&J.
