Today we went on our annual drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's one of my most favorite places on earth. It's a part of the Shenandoah National Forest, I inserted the link to the official web site if you'd like to know more about it. It's an hour and a half from our house so it makes for an enjoyable day trip.
We have gone at other times during the year but Autumn is a favorite time to go for obvious reasons!
There are many look out points to stop in. Today was a busy day up there as there were many people doing the same thing as we were.
Husband and me.
As many look out points as there are, I always seem to see prettier scenes along the highway and am always looking for a safe place to stop and snap pics.
Husband wanted to go to a nearby place called Crabtree Falls so we turned off the Blue Ridge Parkway and continued on. Along the way I spotted this AWESOME cabin! Once I stopped to take the pic I noticed a truck in the driveway and realized that it's someone's home, oops! It was just so cool lookin' I had to take a pic so I quickly snapped and hurried on along!
Crabtree Falls is a beautiful and picturesque place that is mainly for hikers but even I can make it to the first level! Husband goes up further but I am content right here.
You better not have a full bladder though with the sound of the water fall and all, LOL. It's a very pretty place, if I were either younger or in shape or both I'd probably have a go at the hike.
So once we had our fill of nature for the day we decided to head on home with one stop along the way at the Covesville Antique Store. What day trip would be complete without a stop in antique store anyway, huh? I didn't buy anything but I sure could have! ha!
I was able to listen to the NASCAR race on the way home on the radio and caught the last fifty laps or so on tv when we got home....can't miss the race ya know!
Well that was my Sunday, I hope you enjoyed reading about it, have a great week everyone!
