Summer on Skyline Drive & Blue Ridge Parkway

The haze of summer has settled over the Blue Ridge Mountains as seen from Skyline Drive.
Overlooking Waynesboro in the Valley.

Skyline Drive's new entrance station at the southern end near Rockfish Gap.

Wildflowers blooming in the Humpback Rock area.
A quick stop for lunch at Humpback Rock Picnic Area and then we were back on the road.
It was a warm summer day and a perfect time to head up to the mountaintops. We are so fortunate in this area to be minutes away from Skyline Drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and many other state and national recreational areas. When the mountains call, it's not difficult to answer....
