Fall in the Mountains

I love the colors of fall, and there's no better place to see it all than right here in Central Virginia. I tried to snap pictures of the scenery while driving across the mountain by Skyline Drive, but that didn't work out so well. So... after I got over the mountain, I pulled off the road into the parking lot of Elkton School, and got this great shot of the fantastic trees sitting out front. And this is just a wee bit of the color you'll see when you visit our area. The Shenandoah National Park is magnificent. There's so much color everywhere. For those of you who visit Massanutten Resort to see the changing of the leaves, this coming week is the week to be here. Colors will be at their peak. Also, because it's fall, there will be so many events going on you won't be able to take them all in. Plenty to do!

So, come visit Virginia and see why we love living here!

Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you about the wildflowers that pop up everywhere. This stretch is on Rt. 33 just before you get to Elkton, Virginia. Beautiful!
