Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. To see many, many more outdoor photos or to post some of your own, please head on over to her blog.
M and I spent this past Fourth of July weekend at Shenandoah National Park, one of our favorite places. I'm not the greatest outdoorswoman, but I do like getting out and communing with nature occasionally. And M loves it – takes him back to his younger days as an Eagle Scout. And although I'm a flatlander at heart, M loves the mountains and seems to become more and more relaxed and happy, as the altitude increases. So for this week's Outdoor Wednesday, I thought I'd just post a handful of photos I've taken on our visits to Shenandoah over the last few years. It's a beautiful part of the country and a very pleasant place to spend a few days – especially in the early fall – with all sorts of interesting plants and wildlife to see. Just watch out for the deer ticks!
