Colorful Friday Five

Willy Nilly Friday
1. Yesterday we drove up to Skyline Drive to see autumn color. We went by way of Sperryville and entered from Route 211. If you go this weekend, I recommend using that entrance or either of the ones south of there because the northern (Front Royal) gate gets so much traffic on October weekends.

2. Near the northern end of Skyline Drive is Dickey Ridge Visitor Center. Stop by to see quilt art with a National Parks theme. 



3. This cutie was for sale in the gift shop. It reminds me of my friend, Ranger Shannon.

4. Below is a little creek in George Washington National Forest. This spot is across Mine Mountain Road from the iron furnace I showed on Tuesday.

5. This final shot shows a view of the lake at Cacapon Resort State Park. The name Cacapon comes from a Shawnee word meaning "medicine waters."

  7. I enjoyed seeing your photos of Skyline Drive. Haven't been to Dickey Ridge in ages. Will have to go that way next time we feel like a drive up that way. We always go through Sperryville.
