First Step is a Doozy

This is a shot from an overlook along the Blue Ridge Parkway, captured on August 13, 2011.  It’s located at an overlook called 20 Minute Cliff, and you can read about it in the bottom image.  This scene can be found at Mile Post 19 in Nelson County, Virginia.

Blue Ridge Parkway Scenery

This is just one example of the many wonderful views available to travelers of the Blue Ridge Parkway.  This vista was captured on August 13, 2011 just east of Buena Vista (clever name, right).  Click HERE to see the location in Google Maps.

Mountains, mountains, mountains…I love seeing those off in the distance.

Barn at Knob Cemetery

This picturesque barn is located in the Peapatch area of Buchanan County, Virginia, just on the southeastern side of Knob Cemetery.  The West Virginia mountains can be seen in the background.  For a location on Google Maps, click HERE.  My great grandparents are buried in Knob Cemetery, and I will have some photos of the graves in tomorrow’s post.  This image was made on November 13, 2011.

I love mountaintop vistas.

Appalachian Mountains – Buchanan County

This is the view from Peapatch Road in Buchanan County, Virginia.  This was taken on a cloudy day, but the visibility was still good enough to see many mountains in the distance.  This view is looking in the direction of about North 30 degrees East.  Click HERE for the location on Google Maps…you’ll be surprised to see the many mountains as you zoom out.  NOTE:  As I reviewed this post again, I was probably standing on or near the Virginia/West Virginia border looking into West Virginia.

What a fantastic view.  “Stop and smell the roses” as the saying goes.

Scenic Baneberry Golf Club

This is just one of the many vistas that are available while playing a round of golf at Baneberry Golf Club in Baneberry, Tennessee.  This is the view from the tee box on hole number 6, looking down the fairway.
