We drove the North Carolina portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway, starting at the entrance nearest I-77. I had read before we chose our entrance point that if you have limited time, the North Carolina bit is more scenic than the Virginian because it is much more mountainous.

We spent about 7 hours on the parkway from I-77 to Asheville, where we called it quits.

More Pictures from Evans Knob Farm

There’s not much more to say about Evans Knob than John already said. We completed our two weeks of WWOOFing yesterday and are really sad to have to go back to our normal lives. Kathy, Reid and the rest of the Evans family (pets included), all really made us feel at home, useful and appreciated.
