North Carolina Roads - Blue Ridge Pkwy.
Blue Ridge Parkway
All photos courtesy Lou Corsaro and southbound, except the first and last photos.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get a snap of the entire Craggy Pinnacle, but then again, this site is PG-13.
Heading south from the Craggy Gardens to an older shield.
The ugly and the sublime. Sometimes the National Parks Department gets it right, and when they do it's fantastical state-namey hotness.
Ugly sign, quaint tunnel.
Despite as many people as are now moving to North Carolina, the Parkway still has scenery like this.
Old US 421 runs right next to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Laxon (an unincorporated area near Deep Gap). It is still maintained by NCDOT (one of their unsigned four-digit routes), but while it may be old 421, it's not NC OLD 421 - if anything, this would be marginally acceptable in a US shield.
