Blue Ridge Parkway continued

Part 2 Rocky Knob to James River
On day 2 we continued north, stopping for a few hikes and walks and for lunch in Roanoke. We eventually turned off the Blue Ridge at the James River as the day was waning and we wanted to make it to Charlottleville in daylight. We ended up taking a detour through Lynchburg.

 Rakes Millpond

Smartview Recreation area - we had a nice walk and met an amateur ornithologist and his dog Goldie

The road cuts over some deeper gorges

The well-known Appalachian Trail runs along the Blue Ridge....technically I have now hiked a section of the trail. It may be a very small section, but it still counts!
