Day 3: The Highest Elevation on the Blue Ridge Parkway Motor Road

Highest Point Blue Ridge Parkway Motor Road

The Blue Ridge Parkway’s highest elevation sign is found at the Richard Balsam Overlook, Milepost 431.

When we stopped to snap a quick photo, it occurred to me that we didn’t have many miles left before our trip down the BRP would be complete. We were just a short hop from where the parkway ended and we’d have travelled the 469 miles of its length. Of course I was excited to see new things, but there is that element of traveling that tugs at your heart strings. Part of you never wants any of it to end.

But, we still had one more place to visit in Maggie Valley before our time on the Blue Ridge was over…

  1. I know this is going to sound repetitive, but…

    Oh, wow, that picture is awesome! It’s perfect with those clouds in the background. Too bad you and Mr. Galore weren’t in that one, too.

  2. I enjoyed reading your post and a picture is woth a thousand words. Your post picture at mile post 431 the highest point on the Blue Ridge reminds me of when I was there in 1998. Enjoy the ride and you will remember it all your life. There is no greater way to experience the wonders of this great country better then on two wheels. Ride safe and build the memories of a lifetime. Peace
