I exited the Park at the end of the Drive and headed down into the
Waynesville Valley for the night.
I drove about 60 miles along the Blue Ridge Parkway (same road

get color photography of the fall colors down in the NE-SW running

going up and down that washboard terrain. They didn't 'green dot' it
