We spent the night at Mark and Karen's lovely home. Karen made us a really delicious breakfast of sausage, French toast, mushroom quiche and coffee/tea/juice After exchanging photographs with Mark, we did a short walk around the neighborhood. Braddock Heights is a really nice, quiet and safe area with great views.

|Lunch at McDonald's in Dupont PA|
Since we started the trip with our first meal, breakfast, at Burger King which was decorated differently than any other that I've seen, I thought that I might as well end it with a picture of our last meal during the trip. Lunch at McDonald's, which was also decorated differently than others we've been to.
And last but not least: If you want more information about the Blue Ridge Parkway, here is a link to their website http://www.blueridgeparkway.org/ . Also if you go before the peak season, lots of the facilities are not going to be open. Food and washrooms are also few and far apart, so be prepared to get off the parkway or bring your own lunches etc.. The weather can change quickly so be prepared for cold and wind and rain. Drive slowly and stay on your own lane, those curves can be tight and you can't see what's coming towards you. And keep an eye on those bicyclists, there are quite a lot of them and they are allowed on the roads as much as the cars and motorcycles. And no throwing cans and bottles or anything else at them.
