Lake and Mountain View, Snowy Day

I took this picture on Monday while watching to see whether the farmer was able to catch his run-away sheep. I was outdoors in the snow getting cold anyway so I'm glad I was able to capture this view to show you.

That's the end of the Massanutten Range in the distance. Don't the mountains look majestic in the snow? They're not as high as you might think — around 2100 feet here. Compare that to elevations of 3000 and 4000 feet in nearby Shenandoah National Park.


  1. Hi Linda, I am new to your blog and have enjoyed looking at several of your wonderful posts. I also live in VA and have enjoyed many trips to the Shenandoah's over the years. I look forward to coming back.

  2. That is stunning!! Your lake looks much bigger than the little thing I live by.

  3. Oh so pretty. WE didn't get any of that snow down here.
