Mountain Tunnel

Mountain Tunnel, Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina  © Doug Hickok

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, our road trip was a long one, going 1900 miles in 9 days through 7 states. Our purpose was to visit family and friends. Luckily I was able to grab some photography along the way too. All I can say is thank goodness for the 3 C's... cruise control, coffee and companionship.

We visited two large metropolitan cities, a few small towns, some very rural areas, and a couple of National Parks. One leg of the trip was spent on the Blue Ridge Parkway, driving through the high ridges of the Appalachian Mountains. Years ago many tunnels were blasted through mountain sides to complete the scenic road. This image was made going through one of the tunnels.
