Blue Ridge Parkway - The Post-Season
That's right folks the leaves are gone and so are most of the Buicks, RV's and Minivans. Despite the early snow we had last week the Parkway is open around Asheville.
With fairly mild temperatures forcast for the coming weekend, you'll have at least one more chance to enjoy the undulating blacktop, albeit without the glorious leaf color. Once we get a healthy snow or enough downed trees, the Parkway is usually closed to motor vehicles until April.
I was up there Sunday morning just after sunup. At 57 degrees it was 7 degrees warmer at the 4,000-5,000 ft. Parkway elevations than down in the valley. This is typical. It was also desoalte. As the morning wore on, I encountered some bicyclists but very few cars.
Enjoy it while you can.
