U.S. Highway 221 below Linn Cove Viaduct
Cruising along the lesser traveled U.S. 221 below the Blue Ridge Parkway and the iconic Linn Cove Viaduct at Grandfather Mountain is a very different experience this time of year from the congestion of the Parkway. Boulders, waterfalls, and overhanging tree limbs offer a more natural drive, with tighter curves and rougher pavement. The colors for late October were more vibrant than I remember from past seasons. When most of the Mountains are having less color coming later than normal, this area is surprisingly beautiful. The reds and oranges are especially bright. This video will give you just a hint at the beauty….
