ASHEVILLE âEUR" The Blue Ridge Parkway is supposed to be open âEUR" roads unaffected by the federal government shutdown, the National Park Service website reads. But gates shutting off major portions of the scenic route said otherwise as countless visitors

Having driven parts of this beautiful area, with such gorgeous scenery, it's a downright shame that it's closed.
What a bummer.

Thanks, Barb xo

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr is right, Animae! The Mango Madman pisses me off more each day, it seems. I hope he's pissing off enough people - especially those who voted for him - so he loses by a landslide in 2020, while Democrats retake the Senate and hold on to the House. Provided, of course, that he even lasts that long.

:-( This is the fault of the current administration and this did NOT have to happen.

I hope this idiot opens up the government again. How did he get the right to close it down?

I've driven the Blue Ridge Parkway, though it was years ago. It was so beautiful. Each turn revealed a view even more beautiful than the one before. I suspect that it does close during the winter when the roads are bad but this is just sad. Thank you
