Spring Road Trip

Our latest road trip destination was southwest Virginia. The scenery was spectacular as we drove north from Georgia through the mountains of North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

After an overnight stop in Asheville we continued to be awed by the scenery as we drove north through the Blue Ridge Mountains. The flowering eastern redbud trees added splashes of pink as we traveled to Southwest Virginia.

On our way to see Luray Caverns we took  a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

After we purchased our tickets at Luray Caverns we had a short wait before we walked down the steps to begin the 90 minute tour. We followed our tour guide and stopped a few times along the way to admire the spectacular formations (and of course take photos).

All three generations of our family enjoyed the caverns, even our two teenage grandchildren!

    1. Ingrid, I loved seeing the redbuds in bloom. They were blooming beside the interstate a lot of the trip. There were also pink dogwoods but I wasn’t able to get a picture of them. Somehow we lucked out and timed the trip at just the right time.
