After a late breakfast at Kathy's, we embarked on a scenic drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We stopped at the Humpback Rocks Mountain Farm, where I hassled some chickens (WHY won't they let me pet them??), then did a short hike up to Humpback Rocks from the picnic area.
We would have enjoyed a longer hike but that was all the time we had. We checked into the Buena Vista Motel before heading on to Lexington for our gig at the Devil's Backbone Outpost. There was a bit of a mass exodus of sports fans when their game ended, which was discouraging, but the smaller crowd of music fans that stayed gave us the pickup we needed, and it ended up being a pretty fun gig.
