Outdoor Wednesday: Mountain Time

Over the weekend, M and I spent some time in Shenandoah National Park. The weather was beautiful, with cool clear nights, and days that started out chilly but warmed up to almost summer-like temperatures in the afternoons. Perfect for being out and about, doing a little light hiking and just enjoying a gorgeous early autumn break. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

The views along Skyline Drive were really wonderful - much less hazy than usual. You could see for miles and miles (literally).

The only clouds were small, white, and puffy. So perfect, it was almost boring!

Even Kayla, my little travel doll, got to enjoy the views.

The park was crowded for the Columbus Day weekend; in fact, there were more people there than I've ever seen on any of our other visits.
And, naturally, they were all busy doing just what I was doing!

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 visit her blog.


  1. Beautiful photos, Joy... glad you could get away. I like the framing of your second photo. Fall is in the air here, too, in the desert southwest...

  2. Beautiful! I am hoping to ride thru the mtns this weekend and check out the fall colors.

  3. Thanks for sharing these wonderful views with us. We encountered much more haze when we were there in August.

  4. Gorgeous views and i can see why so many people were there. The day looked beautiful.
