Galax, VA

We took it pretty easy today. Still hot, but we didn't let that stop us from having fun. We briefly visited downtown Galax (we'll spend more time there on Friday at their Leaf and String Festival), then walked around Hillsville but there wasn't anything worth spending $$ on there. Then Susan suggested we go to Chateau Morrisette (a mountain winery located on the Blue Ridge Parkway) for lunch. Unfortunately for us (but fortunately for our wallet), it is closed on Mondays. Oh well... We decided to drive down the Parkway back to Galax instead of the usual roads. In a few miles we stopped at Mabry Mill (see picture) and enjoyed a delicious lunch there overlooking the mountains. Well fed, we continued for an hour or so enjoying the views from the Parkway back to the campground. Then we relaxed...
