Shenandoah's Fall Color

The fall foliage season, when the changing palette of deciduous trees is in blazing bloom, is now starting. so, let's leave the city behind and head to the spectacular Skyline Drive in Shenandoah Valley!!!

Free Days - Saturday thru Monday, November 9 thru 11 -- Veterans Day Weekend

They have several restaurants, so we can plan to eat there. Just bring a snack and a bottle of water with you.

We will leave from Vienna Metro Station at 10:00 (non Arab time), because it is a long trip. It is more fun to carpool together, so we can enjoy the drive.

The park will apparently not show up on GPS so we will use: Skyline Drive & Stonewall Jackson Highway, Front Royal, VA

Looking forward to seeing you...

      Thanks Omar. Hopefully there will be more outdoor events before the weather gets too cold. Looking forward to seeing some pictures from the hike!

    Please try to make it to Vienna Metro station north by 10:00 sharp. The day is so short now, and we would like to leave on time to enjoy the day. My cell number is[masked]

    Thanks Omar, on my side, if it is above 45, I am on for hiking on a short trail :)

  • Omar E.

    I agree.. If the temperature is above 50-55, then we can plan to hike... Would any of you would like to take the lead and plan it? Thank you in advance

      No problem--glad I could help. Regarding the time requirement, definitely under 3 hours, as Naomi said.

      November 7, 2013

    • Omar E.

      Thank you Naomi... We will plan to hike for 2-3 hours. Some of will not hike, because they have little infants or simply they feel cold. I'll try to accommodate every interest.

    Hi Naomi,

    We did not plan to hike, but if the weather is good, you are more than welcome to hike. I know that some members might join you as well.

      I'm so glad that Naomi asked the question--I assumed this event was a hike. So is most of the trip geared towards seeing Skyline from the car? Thanks!

      I really want to hike if there are at lest 2 others wanted to hike. There are many short trails and my favorite is Stony Man trail. It's not that long and you can see the mountain views <1 mil. There are many links from the trip I recently had: http://www.meetup.com...­
