Virginia (part three)

The last stretch of Virginia was something that was on my mind before I started this trip. From what I gathered it was going to be the hardest part on the road, physically at least.  From Afton the climb started up towards the Blue Ridge Parkway. I expected this to be the toughest section, turns out it was the easiest day in the mountain range. As the days when on the climbs seem to increase in difficulty, I put it down to a decrease in my endurance and an increase in temperature rather than the terrain itself. Every up hill struggle was quickly forgotten once I got to see what views were on offer on the top, followed the fast and breezy down hill ride. As the days went by the landscape continued to leave me in awe.
