Here are the pics from my Trip to the Blue ridge parkway. We ended up riding 1200 miles over 4 days.

The first night we planned on Camping at the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground. On the way there we stopped to check out this campground at Mt. Pisgah and ended up camping here instead. The sites were nice and private and surrounded by flowering bushes. The weather at 4800ft was fantastic. It was really nice to get a break from the heat and humidity of the low country.

After setting up our camp we headed into Asheville to wander the streets and have some dinner. Our first stop was to gawk at all the great creations at the chocolate Fetish.

We found this cool bulk spice shop and spent a while opening up jars and sniffing everything.

We came across a Hula Hoop dance party in a public area downtown. The dancers were really getting into it. The music was some sort of trippy electronica.

For dinner we had Indian food at Chai Pani..This place has insanely good indian and really good chai as well. It's well worth checking out if you are visiting Asheville.

On the way back to our campsite the sun was setting making for some very nice views of the Mountains along the Parkway.
