Commentary Although the Blue Ridge Parkway was built through some beautiful glades, forests, and hills, the designers of the road tried to ensure that the final result of the Parkway created a pleasing view that complemented the surrounding nature. Landscaping surrounding the road softened curves, mirrored the lines of the land, and attempted to enhance the view as much as possible. Picture is not labeled.
