Smokey Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway cruising.

My wife and I just got back from cruising the Blue Ridge Parkway and then through the Smokey mountains. I passed a silver 2010 Camaro on RT 411 in the Smokies and that was the only Camaro I saw the entire trip from Delaware, Ohio. The trip was awesome in our 2SS/RS LS3. The torque is so fun I never needed to downshift going through the mountains. We had our car to the top of Mt Mitchell North Carolina which is supposed to be the highest point east of the Mississippi so I have to assume our car has been has high as you can go east of the Mississippi. We managed a 1085 mile trip and when I got home I washed it thoroughly hoping I would not find any chips or scratches because I did hear a few rock pings in the wheel wells during the trip. I was so pleased that after going over it with a fine tooth comb I could not find a single scratch or chip. It was a great trip and now my car is no longer a virgin garage queen.

Below are some picks of our car and us on top of Grandfather Mountain North Carolina.

Glad you enjoyed the drive! The Blue Ridge Parkway is almost surreal up in the clouds, winding roads, like driving through a heavenly park!! I've taken the Jeep up there many times. Can only imagine how much fun it is to drive the SS

You will love your car and that trip.

Just make sure when you ask an older couple to take a picture of you with your car that you stress to them the goal is to get a picture of the car that just happens to have you in it. The couple that took our picture obviously did not understand how into our car we are and focused on us instead of the car so they cut off the back half I did not notice this until I got back to Ohio and I will probably never get that car back on that mountain. Seems a lot of people just don’t understand how people can get emotionally attached to a car.

Not very far, as you can see we are not young athletic people and the walk up did not bother us at all. Once you get up there you will walk across a mile high bridge in the picture below that swings and creeks as you walk across it, kind of cool with a great view.

I love the pictures! I was just driving on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah yesterday actually, and had thought that it would be fun to drive it again when I get my Camaro. Actually, I'd like to drive the entire length of the Blue Ridge parkway sometime...now THAT would be fun. Ending up in the Smokies would be another bonus (I did some hiking there a couple of years ago, I love that place.)

Great pics. I am going there on a motorcycle trip from upstate new york in 3 weeks. Riding the entire blue ridge parkway and then onto Gatlinburg, TN. And then a week of riding the Great Smoky mountains. Can't wait. Last year did the trip down skyline drive and then onto gatlinburg. Meeting up with like 120 other can-am spyder riders.
