Crow at an Overlook

Skyline Drive, Northern Section

Our weather has been beautiful the last few days and we don't want to waste it by staying indoors. Yesterday I had an appointment in Woodstock and afterward we drove south to Route 211 and east to Shenandoah National Park. Skyline Drive is always enjoyable there and in the autumn it's spectacular! 

We didn't see much wildlife this time; perhaps the influx of fall tourists had sent them deep into the woods. This crow made an appearance at an overlook and posed for me on a tree. 

The fall foliage has passed it's peak at the higher elevations but as you can see, there's still some fine color on the slopes.

  1. I'm sure the crow approves of the view from up there! Beautiful!

  2. We've had beautiful warm weather here as well, but we've had to enjoy it by raking leaves in our yard.

  3. I love the silhouette of the crow and the tree branches against the sky. Nice photos!

  4. You live close to beautiful landscapes. I like the high point from which you took the photos.

  5. Wow...great profile of the crow and stunning Fall Colors!

    Thanks for sharing the link this week at I'd Rather B Birdin'.
