Shenandoah National Park is located about 3 hours from Washington, DC, and a must experience during Fall.
We saw a black bear dart across Skyline Drive when we were getting into the park, and saw deer at close quarters.
The Fall colors were wonderful with the reds, yellows, and every color in between in the park. Simply beautiful!
The reds came wafting through the woods.
The rocks had their own colors to compete with the colors of the trees.
Some trees had already lost all leaves, and were waiting for next year.
Some trees were full of flowers and looked pretty on a cloudy day.
Some lucky person lives in this barn in the woods in Shenandoah.
A terrific riot of colors all over the park for the 105-mile drive in Shenandoah.
Even the fence was colorful.

We were going to stay the night in the Skyland Resort, but the roads were being closed because of the October 2011 early snow storm, so we had to unfortunately leave Shenandoah that night. Nice 3-hour trip back to DC, but not before we saw more colors than our eyes could take in.
