Another place we visited back East was Shenandoah National Park. We didn’t have time to do the entire Skyline Drive, but did drive through part of it and ate dinner at the Skyline Resort. Although the scenery was beautiful, the sky was somewhat cloudy and the air rather foggy so the visibility was limited.
But still great fun.
The dinner at the Skyline was topped off with their famous (truly, it’s what they’re known for) blackberry ice cream pie.
If our trip had been a few weeks later, the trees would’ve been in full color and I’ve heard that is beyond magnificent – but then again, I have also heard that the park is packed during the peak color season.
So, we’ll be content with our quiet, mid-September meandering drive.
