South Fork in Autumn

We returned to Shenandoah River State Park on November 1st to enjoy the last days of the fall foliage season. We were rewarded with a gorgeous day and blue water!

I took these photos from a short trail through the tent camping area. There are steps going down to the river for the convenience of folks with canoes and kayaks. There's a reason nearby Front Royal is called the Canoe Capital of Virginia!

This stretch of the Shenandoah River is near the Thunderbird Site, where Paleo-Indians fished and made arrowheads around 10,000 years ago!

One of my previous posts on this park is the second most popular post on this blog in terms of hits, with over 6,950 views.
