Last Week on the Blue Ridge Parkway

We drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia on Tuesday, July 20th. Not only was it ten degrees cooler up in the mountains, but gorgeous. Not we traveled through mountains that towered almost as tall (not quite though) as out west where I grew up, but we saw breathtaking scenic views from edge of mountains down on valleys with woods, towns, and farm land. My husband and I so want to come back in October when autumn colors are out.
I had never seen so many butterflies (particularly, large, blue winged ones) as we did that day. They lingered on flowers, they settled on the road and sometimes covered the air. We caught sight of a buck chewing a leaf, who watched us drive by unconcerned, and then went back to his eating. As you can see above, I took pictures of two faces drawn and colored on rocks (one blue, the other pink) that sprouted up at the edge of a cliff. Who dared to not only defaced the natural beauty, but had to teeter dangerously in an area that with one slip and they would tumble to their possible deaths?
We stopped at the Humpback Rocks Visitor Center, where they had a farm museum inside and down a path that lede to a farm with a garden that had a scarecrow, a chicken coop with chickens, and other buildings used in the area from from 1890s-1950s.
We also got lost at one point and the GPS had us driving along a dirt, rocky road for a while, until we came to a bridge tunnel that reminded me creepily of the Bunnyman Bridge and Crawford Road Bridge. Was this one haunted also? Nothing showed up on my photos and I never tried to do a recording to find out if I caught any evps.
We did get to Crabtree Falls, but discovered needed three dollars cash to park, so nver got to see the next largest falls east of the Mississippi. And being late, too late to check out the Walton House Museum nearby. Luckily, we never did park and walked to the falls, for it rained, becoming a torrental downpour with wild wind. We plan to return to Nelson County to see these two.
We drove home all the way in mostly heavy downpour until got on Route 288 to Chesterfield. The rain never got there.

I found this drawn on a part of a rock overhanging over the edge of an outlook on Blue Ridge Parkway Tuesday, July 20th. It and a blue face had been done, right at the edge of these rocks. Who dared to deface the natural beauty of this area and really, was crazy enough to do it, as they could have fallen to their deaths?
