Stone Mountain Overlook (2010)

The Blue Ridge Parkway Anniversary Series Art by Teresa Pennington


he Blue Ridge Parkway, known as “America’s Favorite Drive,” is a national park comprising 469 miles of limited access highway along the Blue Ridge Mountains ridge from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina and Tennessee. The 20 million visitors who drive the parkway each year can see protected views in many places, as well as opportunities for recreation and cultural experiences. On September 11, 1935, construction of the parkway began. Although sections opened sooner, it was finally completed in 1983. Throughout 2010, the Blue Ridge Parkway has marked its 75th anniversary. In recognition of the Blue Ridge Parkway’s anniversary, Waynesville artist Teresa Pennington during the past four years issued four of her popular, meticulously rendered colored-pencil illustrations of beloved Parkway overlooks.
