Default Blue Ridge Mountains

Equilibrium and I went for a drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains, on Skyline Drive through the Shenandoah National Park. We only got to see the southern portion of the drive, as the sun sets earlier these days. However, autumn has begun and it was lovely. I'll post some photos from the trip.

Some scenery...

I didn't do too good... my camera batteries crapped out on me... boo hoo. It was a fantastic drive though. We got out at just about every stop that wasn't under construction and walked around.

This is the last of the photos from me. It's really a shame my batteries gave out when they did but I still wouldn't have traded the experience of being there for anything.

I think you got better shots than I did, Lib, in spite of your camera woes. I'll look to see of I have any more worth posting.
