Day 8! Shenandoah National Park – Skyline Drive

Shenandoah Nat Park 1aToday we drove the majority of Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park which is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virgina.  The total length is 105 miles.  The scenery is amazing.  This is Sandy Bottom (nothing to do with me, no comments please!!)

This is a three shot panorama taken from the Stoney Man outlook.

Whilst at the Crescent Rock outlook we met Joe (standing) and Lawrence from Manchester (no, not the UK one)  Tennessee.  Poor Lawrence’s Harley had broken down and they were waiting for a tow truck.  Their planned holiday had come to an abrupt end. We had a lovely chat with them, offered our sympathies and water and wished them well.

The Park is full of wildlife including deer and bears.  Today we were lucky to see a deer up close but alas, no bears! You will notice that the deer is tagged and is wearing a radio collar! Wonder what he was listening to!! He took no notice of us at all so it must have been something good.

In the adverts for tourism in Virginia, their slogan is “Virginia is for lovers” so not wanting to disappoint, here are two of them!! Soppy or what!!
