Five for Friday: Skies and Signs

I'm still enjoying blog linkups so I'm taking advantage of the Willy Nilly Friday format today and linking up to several other sites. I have five photos from our Shenandoah region so I hope you'll come along!
1.  I made this picture at Shrine Mont and I call it "Heal Me." I'm sharing it with Skywatch Friday. (Don't be concerned, I'm not seriously ill! I'm just tired of having multiple food allergies and other dietary challenges.)

2. This week's topic for My Town Shoot Out is "City at Night."  We're looking at Front Royal as seen from Skyline Drive.  Now that I see this online, I realize a tree in the center of the picture interrupts the horizon. It looks odd because your can't quite tell that it's in the foreground. There is one on the right side that looks more natural.



3. Speaking of Skyline Drive, the picnic areas have re-opened for the season, AND you can visit for free April 16-24, 2016! All our National Parks are fee-free to celebrate 100 years of National Parks in the USA! Y'all come, 'ya hear? 

4. I have another sign for you and also for Signs, Signs and Orange You Glad It's Friday.  We saw this one at Blandy two weeks ago, so perhaps they are open again by now.
By the way, bears don't fully hibernate in Virginia!
5. Photo Friday's challenge this week is "Blurred." (Literally.) We had some strong winds recently and I got a picture of the willow tree in the wind.  It lost a few small branches, as did most of our trees.

  1. A very thoughtful five. I do hope your food allergies are resolved soon, that must be tiresome.
    I really liked the lights of Front Royal.

  2. Food allergies are tricky. We didn't really get a handle on my son's until we sent off the DNA testing to Europe. They tested over 600 foods and since then he has been doing great... We know exactly what he can't have!

    1. That's great! It took me years to find all my allergies through different types of tests.

  4. Front Royal looks so much bigger in your photo than it seems when I drive through it. Your photo give a relaxing feeling to look at.

    1. It does have a small town feel. But it is spread out, and the area below the right-hand horizon is mostly new development along I-66 including Walmart center and a new power plant.
