As one of the most visited units of America's National Park System, the Blue Ridge Parkway always seems to be "in the news." The road meanders through twenty-nine counties and four US National Forests in western North Carolina and Virginia, and the Parkway traveler contributes tremendously to the economy of both states. Park related news is published here on a frequent basis.
