From various entry points in Virginia to Asheville, NC, by way of Fancy Gap, I’ve made the drive 100 times on my way to and from southern destinations. It’s slow traveling, but the views and overlooks are worth the time. I travel the Blue Ridge in the fall. That’s when my exhibitions are scheduled in this part of the country; the waning deciduous leaf color combined with adelgid devastated hemlocks gives the ride an at times somber feel. But, I enjoy the quiet, the slow pace, the misty fall colors, and the absence of trucks.
