I work in Boone NC and try to avoid the parkway in the Summer and fall.
The fall is just crazy,one big traffic jam and in the Summer you run the risk of getting in a Harley parade.
Best time i found is when the skools go back around the second week of September it can clear up.
I see where your coming from, but for me doing it in September after I had seen it in the fall was a scenery let down. I think if you do the traveling during the week and don't mind passing the under 45mph folks October is just fine.
