Autumn Rituals: Shenandoah Parks

One meaning of willy-nilly is by compulsion, and we've been almost compulsive in driving around to our favorite fall foliage spots.

1. Shenandoah National Park. The views are great, the fall color is spectacular. I avoid the weekends and go during the week. We are fortunate that the park is not far from home.

I don't know the couple in the black and white shot, but they were happily taking a selfie at an overlook.

2. Shenandoah River State Park. Both along the river and up at Cullers Overlook, the autumn views are lovely.

See Cullers Overlook in 2013.
3. Glen Burnie at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.

Yesterday I shared some photos from the gardens. There were still a few flowers blooming but I suspect the really cold weather this weekend will put an end to that.

Sharing with Floral Friday and Friday Bliss.

5. Skywatch: It seems fitting to close out the day with a sunset photo.

Have a pleasant weekend!


  1. Hi Linda,

  3. Beautiful views of your region and the photo of the sunset is stunning.

  4. ...Linda, such a beautiful beginning and end to this fall post. We are in the 20s today, there are few if any flower to be seen. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Wonderful photos of your neck of the woods.

  6. Beautiful shots, that last one especially!

  7. beautiful images all of them BW and colors.
    You know, I love the name of the place. Don´t know why but Shenandoah rings a bell. Maybe books from my youth?

  8. Lovely images and beautiful scenery.

  9. Lovely photos. The foliage at Shenandoah park is spectacular.

  10. Gorgeous photos of the fall colors and flowers.

  11. I am crazy about fall color this year. You have some great photos. Shenandoah is on my bucket list.
    I love taking photos of people doing selfies, yours is a classic. It looks like something from the 50's in the black and white you did.
