Linn Cove Viaduct on the Blue Ridge Parkway with Hawksbill Mountain behind on the left and Table Rock Mountain on the right.

The beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the most traveled roads in all of America. Beginning in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, the 469-mile-long drive was built to ride the high ridge lines of the Blue Ridge Mountains to showcase the immense natural beauty of the region.

Constructed during the Great Depression and sanctioned by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP) has a historic aspect to it, as well as the beautiful stone archway bridges found throughout the length of the roadway were constructed by the WPA workers of the day.
