"Once a Year, go someplace you've never been before."
I always wanted to drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and see the Blue Ridge Mountains. This past Labor Day weekend (as an anniversary present) I got to do just that. My husband and I drove on The Blue Ridge Parkway from Asheville, NC to the Smokey Mountains in Gatlinburg, TN. I have now seen for myself why they call them the Blue Ridge Mountains. Loved all the mountain roads much different than my home state of Illinois.
