I started with all intentions of driving the full 100 miles of the Parkway followed with more hours going down the Blue Ridge Mountain Pkwy as well.
By the time I had driven 65 miles of it, good enough. I departed and got back on I-81 headed south.
Naturally by mid-afternoon the rain was gone and blue skies returned. Too late now, I wasn't going back
There were a number of deer wandering about. Some with decorative ear tags and one was sporting a gaudy green tag mounted on a necklace around it's head.
I swear those Park Rangers have no sense of style. Green tags with a brown coat... How gouache!
For now, tomorrows ride will be short. I'm, within a few hours of my next lay over. Big Stone Gap VA.
Way back in the hills deep in coal mining country. More to come on that story.
