Views from Walker Mountain

Here are some more pictures I took on the crest of the Appalachians in southwest Virginia. As I mentioned in a post a few days ago, we wound up there accidentally when we found ourselves on a detour instead of going through Big Walker tunnel. The tunnel would have saved us 30 miles but we would have missed some lovely views and a history lesson.

  5. We've often found that the most gorgeous scenery can be found off the beaten path. You certainly found some marvelous views on your detour.


The View from Squirrel Ridge features thousands of views of the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding area. I post frequently so please visit often.
