Chasing Fall Colors – Day 3
My favorite boy toy and I were out all day yesterday to take pictures. We hiked up and down hills and stairs, visited battlefields, and did some driving around the countryside.
After a late supper, we went straight to bed, which is why there were no photos this morning for you. Today was a drive back the long way home via Skyline Drive. This goes through the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Shenandoah National Park on the western side of Virginia. We pulled off at nearly every overlook, even if it wasn’t picturesque enough to take photos.
So here are photos from yesterday, then I’m off to unpack and get ready for bed. Tomorrow is back to regularly scheduled programming (i.e., back to work).
Word for tomorrow – CONDUCTOR. If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word A Day”.

Loved seeing your photos, it’s such a beautiful area, especially this time of year. We went there on our honeymoon, 36 years ago this month. Thanks for the memories.
Congratulations! And thank you for the kind words – you are very welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed them.
Ha! I thought it looked like Harper’s Ferry. I was re-reading your post to try to figure it out. Our daughter worked there for the National Park system for two coops a few years ago. Lovely place. And your photos are gorgeous. She lived in a haunted house in town at first. That was a nightmare.
One of the ranger’s was telling us about that. Sounded a bit creepy to me. I hope she had a good experience working there. We were very impressed by how pleasant and helpful they were. The National Park Service owns a lot of the town and there are a lot of responsibilities for those people.
Again, beautiful! BTW, could you tell me how you made your slide show? I would like to try it. Thanks! OH, and thank you for your replies to me earlier today. Made me smile! :D
You’re welcome! Here a link on how to do a slideshow. If you have trouble with it, you should have my E-mail address. Send me a private note with your phone number and I’ll give you a call. It’s very easy to do.
Photos worth waiting for — the Skyline Drive is on my “would like to go there” list. Sleep well, have fun chasing numbers tomorrow.
Thank you! Skyline Drive was beautiful, but I’m too tired tonight to edit them for posting.
I’m sure the numbers have waited patiently for me to come back and I’m ready to go back to work. I had a great break from the job.
If you ever do Skyline Drive, let me know. I’d love to meet you.
