Mabry Mill on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia

Mabry Mill

Mabry Mill is one of the most photographed places on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  It is historically interesting, as it was constructed in 1903, and has operated as a blacksmith and wheelwright shop, a sawmill, and a gristmill.  It is extremely picturesque, with the setting putting on various shows of color, depending on the season.  If you are ever fortunate enough to find yourself on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, be sure to spend a little time exploring Mabry Mill.

Stiles Falls

We enjoyed every minute of the perfect weather yesterday!  One of the things we did was a new-to-us hike to Stiles Falls.  This was a great little hike with several boulder-hopping creek crossings along the trail to the falls.  The falls themselves were a great treat for the eyes and ears.  Hopefully, we will tackle this nice little trail again sometime when the falls are frozen!
