|Moved from the Elks National Home in Bedford Virginia to Beckley West Virginia. We drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We had no idea we would get to be on the Parkway. The smokey blue haze is the reason the mountains are called the Blue Ridge mountains. We stopped at the visitors center when entering West Virginia (again - since Harper's Ferry) and found out about the New River Gorge. A "not to be missed" sight. We went to the "Grandview" outlook and I took photos of the gorge and the river below. We left Beckley, WV and arrived in Lexington, KY on 9/27/12.
