Springtime, Skyline Drive

mountain view and stone wall

We are fortunate to live near Shenandoah National Park and it's beautiful Skyline Drive. Earlier this week a section of the Drive was closed for repairs at Mary's Rock Tunnel but it has reopened.

Park entrance fees are increasing but fortunately we have a Senior Pass. If you are 62 or older, this is a fantastic deal! There are also special passes for disabled persons and active military.

  1. What gorgeous spring shots! Love the pop of the pink blossoms.

  2. Stunning view from the rocky wall in the first photo. A beautiful place.

  3. Brings back such wonderful memories!

  4. Amazing views! Prices must go up, but if you make use of the place often enough, even at regular rates, it's well worth it.

  5. Wow! Spring has definitely arrived!

    I love that part of the country.


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