The Blue Ridge Parkway is nearly 500 miles long and connects Shenandoah NP to The Great Smoky Mountain NP.
I started on the AT along the parkway today.
Found some remains of former inhabitants
A house foundation with fireplace
A graveyard with 12 unmarked stones
One did have this scratched on the stone (M C Lowe)
Not sure if the date 1866 is birth date or date of death?? Maybe civil war casualties?
On a brighter note
See a face in this tree trunk?
