... we reached the end
of Cedar Ridge Trail. At this point, we
turned left to get on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, which runs concurrently with
Bluff Mountain Trail, roughly following the Blue Ridge Parkway southbound. Although the trail had some ups and downs, it
was much more level than the hike up to this point. Moreover, the humidity dropped as we hiked
out of the gorge and there ...
... about hiking before or after. Saturday night wasn't that fun for me directly because I had to get back to the trail the next day. I had found a ride back to Pearisburg, but the catch was it was at 7:30 the next morning.

But first, I had to go up and then almost immediately back down about 1,750 pointless feet. There was one semi-decent view of a lake coming down the ...
So I miscalculated a little bit on just how long it would take to drive the BR Parkway.
Two and a half days was not nearly enough.
Day one was fogged out in any case, but day two was gorgeous. Too many places to stop and take in the scenery. Still, a peaceful, almost zen way to travel: no traffic lights, no traffic, no 100-foot signs, just smooth sailing along quiet, open road. A few cyclists working hard up the hills. ...
