Today we took a short drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway from Peaks of Otter to Indian Gap around 40 miles. On a previous trip we drove 30 miles on the northern end. The Parkway is a total of 469 miles from Rockfish GapVA on the northern end to Cherokee NC . Construction began in 1935 and completed 52 years later. There are 26 tunnels on the drive, with many hiking trails, viewpoints, picnic areas, camping sites. The Parkway links Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains. Part of the Appalachian Trail goes through the Parkway from Indian Gap to Cherokee.
