Great Valley Overlook . Blue Ridge Parkway . MP 99.6

As you travel along the Blue Ridge Parkway there are these overlooks every couple of miles or so...the views are always worth pulling over!

The Great Valley

"The Great Valley extends through the Appalachians from New York to Alabama. Here the valley is confined by the Alleghenies on the west and by the Blue Ridge on the east. The great warrior path of the Iroquois and Cherokee was used by the Scotch-Irish and German pioneers from Pennsylvania when they migrated down the valley to settle this area in 1730-50."

HERE'S a neat site I found to get a virtual view!

Today I am thankful for more and more spring like days! We've been enjoying warm weather and everyday I notice more and more things blooming! The forsythia and daffodils are in bloom and I even saw some Cherry blossoms today! We dip back into winter for the next couple of days but that's ok...spring is right around the corner!

  1. This sign covers some history that is not all good for the native people.

  2. You sure have some view there.
    Snow here yesterday (too warm to stay, luckily!).

  3. Hello, pretty view of the valley. Nice sign! Wishing you a great day!

  4. Oh, that view! I'm also an east coast dweller, and we just returned from a visit to the Colorado Rockies. The mountains there are SO DIFFERENT from ours!

  5. I love driving that route and seeing those amazing sights! Nice when some green starts to show up! Enjoy your week!

  6. What a view Tanya, a view with a lot of history! We have had rain over the last couple of days after months of nothing, it's sooooo nice 😊

  7. we've been there many times... gentle views. Now we live in CO and the mountains are ragged, barren and kind of scary to me!LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  8. Some day I would love to see and hike part of the Appalachians, it looks so beautiful. It is a snowstorm here. Hug B

  9. I think we may be down there somewhere! I love driving up Afton Mountain and looing down into our little valley.

  10. sure looks like a great valley to me! There sure are some beautiful places in this country and you live in one of them. Thanks Tanya for checking in.

  11. I have decided that if it won’t snow then spring might as well come early and stay. I am ready for a weather change. Thanks for linking up.

  12. Sweet memories for me as my husband and I drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway many years ago when we were first married. It was such a beautiful drive! We took a side teip to Luray Caverns.

  13. What an amazing view!

    Here we have a substantial snowstorm going on at the moment.

  14. Another beautiful scene! I miss the BRM!

  15. I love that virtual view. So nice you're getting some spring feelings so soon. :)
