Skyline Drive on a Nice December Day


On the day before Christmas, we took Marie to Woodstock, Edinburg, New Market, and Shenandoah National Park. We didn't have much time in the park before dark but I stopped at Range View Overlook, one of my favorites. Marie and I both took some pictures of the clouds hanging in the mountains.

Here's a view from another overlook taken on a different trip. This is around milepost 7,  looking west here toward the Gooney Manor area.  


Back in October I drove through that area to see the scenery up close. I think I found the same barn! It's on Poor House Road near Browntown. 


I'm sharing that with Tom's barn linkup. And for his Tuesday Treasures, here's the visitor center on Dickey Ridge in Shenandoah National Park. Right now it's closed for the winter.

Before I leave Dickey Ridge, let me introduce one of the permanent residents.

  2. Linda, the view in the third photo stopped me in my tracks, followed by the view from milepost 7 and of course the closeup view. Thanks for stopping by, Happy New Year and I hope to see you back again.

  4. That third picture is a prizewinner Linda! One of the best shots of those mountain ridges disappearing into the distance that I've ever seen.

  8. Love the cloud hanging low in the valleys. I would love to visit the Park again. Our last visit was shortened by a visit from Hurricane Ivan which shut down alot of the roads and we couldn't get through.

  11. Beautiful photographs of beautiful scenery. The first image of the woman with strong features and tightly fastened hair is excellent. She could have modeled for Grant Wood or Andrew Wyeth.

  12. What a fine day to share with your Christmas company. You live in the perfect area for scenery and sky junkies (I am both of those -- and we loved visiting your area). It doesn't look too cold for this season -- I hope that's good.
