Trip Log 5190 - Shenandoah National Park - Blue Ridge Pkwy

We spent the night last night in Waynesboro, VA at the Best Western. It was definitely the best hotel we have stayed at this summer. King size bed, comfy chairs and pillows, and a full hot breakfast downstairs. It was only about $20 more than we usually pay and it was well worth it.

Today is the first day of summer and we lucked out. The national park is free today! So we are going on a beautiful scenic drive through the Appalachians up into Shenandoah National Park.

Right now we are driving on Skyline Drive. Here's a shot from the 1st scenic overlook.

Looking back over Waynesboro above and overlooking the McCormick Gap below.

This is cool driving up along the mountain ridge. It is looking like a beautiful day today. It is supposed to start storming this afternoon and rain for a few days so we are gonna sightsee while we can.

Just about a week to kill time between now and Superball. I think after the park, we are gonna go mine some Herkimers for a few days up in Herkimer NY ad probably visit our friends Jay and Carrie.
