One of our favorite places to visit along the Blue Ridge Parkway is the Blue Ridge Music Center because of its emphasis on--as the name suggests--music. But more on that in the next couple of entries.
On one of these visits, we took the opportunity to do some hiking
"hiking" and "exploring," I'm not talking about hiking 15 miles a day along a portion of the Appalachian Trail with an 80-pound pack on my back. I'm talking about a walk along a level trail for maybe a mile or two (tops) while carrying a camera. And "exploring" is limited to finding an interesting scene to photograph. That being said, we continue.)
