"Quiet day on the Blue Ridge Parkway"


Brevard, US
          

View of Pisgah National forest from a closed section of the parkway. Peaceful when no one is around.

D700, 14-24

Nice. How did you ever get onto a closed section of the highway (by bike) but you weren't trespassing (of course you weren't)?

It certainly looks quiet. I'm sure the North Carolina section of the parkway is like the Virginia section in that it's never closed to foot traffic. Even when gated and snow covered you're free to walk as far as you like-at your own risk of course.

I sometimes wonder about things like that, especially when you see no trespassing signs that you will be prosecuted. I'm thinking that's just to keep rif-raf out so they don't commit petty crimes like stealing that which isn't theirs or persons bent on destroying property.

I'm going to venture into such an area soon but I see a driveway going to a residence from this area. I'll go to see if I can get permission, with camera in tow, so I can demonstrate my good intensions. Anybody else come across situations like that? The area that I'm referring to a an old car graveyard, mostly dealing with VW bugs that has great potential as photo ops.

Chris, great use of evergreen trees and shrubs to juice the foreground in this winter mountain scene. I like everything about this photo. Nice one!

Great Photo. I used to live in Celo, NC. years ago and just a short hike over a ridge to the parkway. Last I was there was in early April and very little traffic.
