The intended view at the Granite Quarry Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway is the Mount Airy Granite Quarry, but it is so far away that it is impossible to discern anything of note. Even the information sign at the overlook states that the quarry is the “white patch dimly visible in the distance.” On the day I visited the smog was so bad that I could barely see the mountains, let alone a dimly visible patch of white.
