Driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway has been on my bucket list for a long time, and we recently spent 2 days driving parts of it. Raven's Roost Overlook is a great place to stop the car and take some photos.

This is in my opinion one of the nicest overlooks along the Blue Ridge Parkway! The parking lot is larger than almost all of the other overlooks and the view is simply amazing. I've been told by locals that with a permit you can repel...More
