Second Annual Blue Ridge Peaks Run

Peaks Of Otter Center
Blue Ridge Parkway
Mile Post 85.9

June 13, 2005


Come join us for a beautiful ride along a section of The Blue Ridge Parkway which follows the Appalachian Mountains and boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.
A hundred species of trees, a variety of flowering shrubs and wildflowers as well as 54 different mammals and 59 species of birds live along the Parkway - more than the entire European continent!

See remnants of the oldest settlements along the Parkway; learn a bit of the history from exhibits at the Visitor Centers. Highlights include:
.Milepost 85.9 - Peaks of Otter - The Johnson farm is a living history farm during the summer. The Polly Woods Ordinary served as a lodging establishment for travelers in the early 1830s. Both are two structures reminiscent of a bygone era.
Milepost 176.2 - Mabry Mill is not to be missed. Explore the mill, a blacksmith shop, wheelwright's and a whiskey still. Demonstrations take place spring through fall.

This sounds like it could be fun. I'm always looking for an excuse to go for a ride on the Blue Ridge. Are you guys meeting at Peaks of Otter and heading South?

Yes, we are starting at the Peaks Visitor Center and driving south to Mabry Mill, having dinner at Chateau Morrisette Winery. Lots of stops along the way. More details on FB at https://www.facebook.com/events/1490182651231545/.
