Description The image shows a view of the Blue Ridge Parkway, with pastures and trees surrounding it. The photo appears to have been taken from a higher vantage point on a hillside.

Several wooden fences cut through pastures on both sides of the parkway, and a house and small shed appear to the right of the road toward the center of the image. A densely wooded area appears in the background, and there are also trees lining the road and scattered in the pastures.
