The boat pier.
Business trip to the USA
Photo's of my business trip to Virginia USA, sept 2004
One of the few natural lakes in Virginia. High up on the top of a mountain, hence the name, duh. A long winding road takes you up there. Fun to drive, reminds me of driving in Bosnia and Croatia in 1995. Cool !
There's a hotel on the edge of the lake, you can rent boats etc.
Yep, not bad at all. Ok, there's a highway in the valley just below the hotel, but apart from the occasional noise you almost wouldn't notice it.
View of the valley and hills from the parkway. It was a bit hazy that afternoon. And my camera skills are not proficient enough to make something better of it.
Nice car !
Typically American, overpowered, ridiculous fuel consumption etc.
But fun to drive, especially compared to my own Golf.
... bears, xcuse me ?
Hmm, I didn't venture too far out on foot after that sign.
The sign saying "Comfort station" didn't really put me at ease ;-)
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a road through a national park of Virginia. Very nice landscapes. I've only seen a small part of it. It's hundreds of miles long.
