YEKCIM Family Vacation, Part II (10 IMG)

Part I was our visit to Colonial Williamsburg. The balance of the week was spent meandering our way back to Alabama, via the Blue Ridge Parkway. Here are a few shots from that part of our journey:

Mabry Mill, Milepost 176:





Wagon wheel, Mabry Mill, Milepost 176:





Guest Musician, Blue Ridge Music Center, Milepost 213:





My sidekick, Bluffs Lodge, Milepost 241:





Mountain Laurel, Bluffs Lodge, Milepost 241:





Walking Trail, Doughton Park, Milepost 242:





Old Rural Building, near Boone, NC (not on the Parkway):





Crabtree Falls, Milepost 340:





Rhondodendron and winged visitor, Craggy Gardens, Milepost 365:





Mountain Laurel and Flame Azalea, Milepost unknown, but probably around 425:






Thanks for looking!

Any idea what the milepost 241 flower is? It is a very cool looking vine. All of the pictures are fantastic. Your family is very lucky to have such a great photographer to preserve memories for them.

Thanks. The flower in that photo and the last one is mountain laurel, which is very common all along the Parkway in May/June.

I'll have to look for the Mountain Laurel - living in middle TN, I'm assuming it would grow just fine here also. Thanks for the name.

really nice photos again, looked through the whole set.
one of our favorite vacation areas although we usually go in early fall( ie sept) to avoid the traffic but then we miss the rhododendrons which are so amazing.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments. It was a nice trip and the new gear certainly got a good workout. Next stop, WDW in November.
