Shenandoah Scenes – Fall 2011

Foliage in Shenandoah National Park is at its peak – maybe a little past!  These photos are from a couple short leg-stretchers, too short to be called true hikes.  Enjoy!

The Point
The Point Overlook on Skyline Drive has a short trail that leads down to a beautiful rocky outcropping.
Backlit Foliage
Looking back toward Hawksbill Mountain.
Crescent Rock
Crescent Rock is a short hike from the same-named overlook along skyline drive. The trail starts at the north end of the parking area.
Fishers Gap Bear
We saw a couple bears in the park. This one was the more photogenic of the two.
At the end of the evening, we were treated to a beautiful sunset!
