A ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway


I would like to thank the National Park Service, Camp Celo, and several friends who shall remain nameless here for a much needed reset in the form of a bike trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Friends at the camp were kind enough to let us park the car I’d borrowed for the trip off in a shady corner:

Happily the weather coöperated and we had an amazing time climbing up the mountains in relatively cool conditions and less taxing whizzing down after enjoying the views:

If you can make the time to bike on the Parkway, I highly recommend it.
