Well, at long last, it’s here — 2010, year of the official celebration of the Parkway’s 75th anniversary! As a member of the Blue Ridge Parkway 75 board of directors, I look forward to being involved in the celebrations and conversations about the Parkway all year. For now, you can check out plans for 75th anniversary events at the official Blue Ridge Parkway 75 website [now defunct].
