Summer in Shenandoah National Park! The plan here is to do my favorite waterfall hike on Saturday and just have some fun! We'll be hitting several swimming holes, cliff jump spots and natural rock water slides. The next day we'll do a rock scrambling hike or just relax in our cabin by the river... fishing or kayaking down the Shenandoah River.
Shenandoah National Park, a beautiful, historic national treasure, can be accessed by the Skyline Drive, a historic 105-mile National Scenic Byway. A slow meander down Skyline Drive will give you a whole new driving experience and will have you stopping frequently to decide which hikes you want to do.
There are 75 overlooks that offer stunning views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west or the rolling piedmont to the east. The maximum speed limit is 35 mph, so you can roll down your windows, feel the breeze and experience every curve and turn of this beautiful drive. The park purposely leaves the roadsides unmowed so wildflowers put on a show all year long. In early spring you can see trillium peeking through the grass. June’s display of azaleas is spectacular, and cardinal flower, black-eyed susans, and goldenrod keep the color coming right into fall.
I know this area very well, so I will find an awesome house with a hot tub and great views... For anybody that has gone on my big trips before you know its pretty much guaranteed. :)
