on the blue ridge mountains

Last week I travelled with my friends down to Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to explore the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have wanted to go for a long time now and it finally happened. We went when the peak of the foliage was ending so the colors of autumn surrounded us. You can actually go to the Shenandoah website and check their weekly fall color report to know what to expect and plan your trip accordingly.

You never know how amazing a mountain is until you can admire it on the top.There are over 500 hiking trails and multiple waterfalls in the park. The Shenandoah is truly grand. We drove through 50 miles of mountains on Skyline Drive with Fleet Foxes in the background. We picnicked in the woods. We hiked down a waterfall where we climbed a rock and admired it from there. I can't wait to go back.

If you ever have a chance to visit Shenandoah National Park, do it! It's breathtaking, especially in fall. All pictures were taken with my Canon Rebel T3i, I have yet to develop my film (3 rolls coming soon).
