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.
