road trip day thirty eight: drive HOME!

Since we stayed in Knoxville, we were able to go the long way home from there and drive Blue Ridge Parkway to see the rhododendron blooms.

We usually drive the Parkway in the fall but it is just as pretty in the summer when everything is green and the flowers are blooming.

The rain put Ellie to sleep and we enjoyed a peaceful drive to Boone for a quick dinner (at Coyote Kitchen, another fave!) on our way home.  All in all, our trip took 38 days, went through 13 states, and was nearly 6400 miles long!
