Shenandoah Vacation ~ Part One: Skyline Drive

If you've been following me on Instagram, you've probably noticed that Ryan and I recently went on vacation to the Shenandoah Valley. Well, technically we were in Gordonsville, but no one knows where that is. We used our phones to document most of our trip, because I wanted to be able to relax and not lug a heavy camera everywhere. In fact, I didn't even carry a purse for most of the trip. You can check out our Instagram shots with the hashtag #cabinfever42. Maybe I'll share those as the wrap-up to the trip, but I've got tons of SLR photos that I'd love to share.

The day after we arrived, we drove up to Shenandoah National Park to drive part of Skyline Drive. Originally we planned to stop at every overlook on our route, but quite a few were closed for construction and there were dozens, so we skipped a few others.

I loved that some areas actually looked more like fall than spring. I can't imagine how gorgeous these views are at the peak of fall!

Ryan tested out his sunroof viewing idea. It's a no go.

Unfortunately exposing this image for us washed out the background, but I promise the sky was gorgeous and blue that day!

Halfway through I decided I should try a panorama of the overlook and this is what I came up with. So pretty!

More to come from our vacation next week!
