On Skyline Drive with Peggy

My sister and her guy drove up from Kentucky last weekend. They spent a couple nights near Leesburg because she was doing a program at her old church, and then spent two nights with us. She wanted to go up to Skyline Drive and fortunately it was open again after being closed for snow.

It was cold though! The wind gusts were strong and drove the cold right through you. We took some hurried pictures; didn't go hiking. We saw some deer but there was no place to pull off and several maintenance trucks were behind me so I missed getting a nice picture of deer in snow.

The stone walls add to the beauty of the overlooks. I'm sharing this one with Good Fences.
