I wanted to share just a few of the photos I took at Shenandoah National Park on Friday afternoon as I traversed Skyline Drive.

Old Rag

That’s Old Rag in the distance, the most popular hiking destination in Shenandoah National Park.

I started walking down to a waterfall before deciding I really didn’t have time to get there and back before I ran out of light. Making that choice allowed me the opportunity to catch Big Meadow bathed in rose light:

And the sunset over Skyline Drive:

Even though I didn’t get to go with Rudi, I’m glad I went anyway.

Yet more photos are here.

Wonderful! Such gorgeous pictures. When I hear Shenandoah, it takes me back to junior high winter carnival where they offered us the movie Shenandoah. Maybe a Jimmy Stewart western? Just what teens in the early 89s want to watch, lol.
The terrain looks a lot like Cape Breton where my sister and and I went hiking a few weekends ago. I’d never been to the Cabot Trail before.

Shenandoah, looks amazing. Calm peaceful. I want to go there! Except I’ve been to Virginia so many times visiting AL, I don’t know exactly when I’d go back. Wish I had done it 5years ago.

Glad you made the right decision to turn back before you got into a situation. Reading about the woman who tripped in Zion and hit her head, Reading Death in the Grand Canyon and being a Donner party know it all………well Im just glad you did and you had a great bonus in addition to being safe
