Wed. I went for a drive, almost in my backyard. I'd seen on the news that the Blue Ridge Parkway was again open. However the closed signs were still up as I entered, detours and all. This was around noon.
But I figured I could always turn around if I met a barrier. I didn't.
And how did this all happen, you may ask?
As the Parkway was closed, people came to see it...
There wasn't much of a paved shoulder, but look what the engineers have come up with...
You can see where the original double line went by, and how they've added some pavement closer to the mountain.
I was glad the new roadway was on firm ground. You're only allowed to go 15 mph there, and that's it.
Here's the view coming back..
Friday Fences HERE...I was so glad to have that concrete barrier over there where the mountain had fallen away from our abundant rain. I'll drive 15 mph any time, in order to continue along the parkway.
I'll entertain you with Craggy Gardens area tomorrow.

If you dedicate yourself to service, the doors will open.
