Taking the back roads

Last weekend Husband and I took a day trip to the Shenandoah National Park to drive the Skyline Drive and see the fall colours. Despite reports on various websites that the leaves were near "peak colour," this did not turn out to be the case! While some of the trees had fall colours, the vast majority were still green, while others had already lost their leaves. The drive was still beautiful but it left us wanting to see some great fall colour. (You can see pictures from that drive on my Facebook page).

Yesterday we drove some back roads around where we live, searching for great views and wonderful fall colours. Unfortunately for us, I think peak colour happened earlier in the week, so the colours weren't as bright as we would have liked. We did, however, see some amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and, of course, we enjoyed spending time together. What more could you ask for? Well, maybe more fall colours, but apparently that is asking too much!
