Travel Theme: Mountains

My favorite boy toy and I spent a lovely day in late 2011 wandering our way home along the Skyline Drive, which goes through the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.  As I wrote here, we’d already taken the time off from work.  Whether we rushed it or just took a leisurely drive, we had already invested the day.  We pulled off in nearly every parking lot we found, took pictures, oohed and aahed, and enjoyed the warm fall day.  Thankfully, the day we drove home the roads were open following a recent snowfall.

To see more mountain shots, visit Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack.  She has some great quotes with her photos, along with numerous links from her many readers.

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous,
leading to the most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
Edward Abbey

The mountains are calling and I must go.

  1. Skyline Drive is so beautiful – and takes a long time to drive it…well, it’s a lot longer because you constantly have to stop and take pictures. We’ve been there in spring/summer – but looks like we need to make a fall-winter trip
    Lovely pictures!

    1. We hit it just right too. It was closed the weekend before due to the snow, but the leaves were still on the trees enough for some nice pictures. If you do decide to check it out, let me know. There’s got to be some place in Charlottesville that we could meet. And that B&B we stayed at in Harper’s Ferry was really nice – you’d enjoy it.


    1. Ha ha! He thinks it’s pretty funny and my readers enjoy the slightly racy aspect of it, especially considering how very conservative I am. Besides, we’ve been together for 40 years (most of it married), so he’s pretty happy to still be a boy toy.

        1. I know! He really is. Besides, it’s a good nickname to use in front of our daughter. It always embarrasses her to be reminded we didn’t find her under in a cabbage patch. The squirm factor is high.
