A Not-So-Wintery Journey up the Blue Ridge Parkway

January 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Sunday, January 10th, I took a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway in search of snow. I have mapped it out so my path can be seen. I got on the Parkway from Hwy 74 and traveled East, into Pisgah National Forest. I stopped to hike and take pictures along the way, and finally made my way out of the forest by going North on Hwy 276. 

 

The whole adventure lasted around 7 hours. I didn't find a whole lot of snow unfortunately. I found some nice fog with a little bit of snow, which made for a really moody picture:

The rest of my trip was nice but very cold. I got some nice shadows on the mountains which I always enjoy. Here are my favorite images from the rest of trip:

The sunset was rather dull, but provided nice reflected light which helped me take this calm picture of Looking Glass Rock from the Parkway. Hopefully we'll get some snow soon so I can take some more seasonal pictures. Cheers - JD
