Occasionally I complain (in jest) “It’s all so GREEN, just green, everywhere you look…green”.
Truly, it’s easy to get jaded (sorry), I mean bored, by this magnificent scenery. Around every corner on the Blue Ridge Parkway it’s the same scene: green ridges, bumps, and dips for literally a hundred miles! Yes, the really distant portion of the view takes on a bluish cast…these are the Blue Ridge Mountains…but it’s really a lot of green.
Slow down. In fact, stop.
If you get out of your car and stand still for a few minutes, you begin to see something….
First, there are scads of different shades of green. Oh wow, how exciting.
Take your time, and you’ll discover all kinds of fascinating things about this great green world!
