If you are planning a drive along the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, consider going to Humpback Rocks (near mile marker 6). Here you can take a short (1 mile) but steep climb up to the Rocks for magnificent views. Or you can tour the mountain farm, a reconstructed farm from the 1800′s, with costumed interpreters. Often on weekends there are performances of mountain music. Humpback Rocks is about a 45 minute drive from Blueberry Hill Farm.

(Most of these photos, except the first one of the house and the one of Roger Neil, were taken with our son’s cell phone. Pretty amazing!)
