707 – The Blue Ridge Parkway: From Virginia to North Carolina

Begun during the Great Depression as stimulus to the local economy, the 500 mile-long Blue Ridge Parkway is now part of our national park system and winds through some of our fairest hardwood and coniferous forests in their mountainous setting.  We choose segments to show the landscape, places, and people along the way, from local music, to moonshine, to barbecue, to NASCAR.
