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?
