Blue Ridge Blues
Parkway Series #289 12 x 16 oil Sold
Between milepost 30 and milepost 40 there is a stretch of roadway that has tremendous views of the valley. The elevation is about 3,000 feet which is pretty high for Virginia mountains. Apple Orchard Overlook, at 3,900 feet is the highest point of the parkway in Virginia. This image looking north west into the Shenandoah Valley captured my attention with the luminous blues of the Blue Ridge.
