The day started in mist, fog, and a climb from Waynesboro, Virginia, up to Skyline Drive. Morning fog kept us well-insulated from any mountain views so I spent the morning focused on the trees and falling leaves within ten feet of me. Continue reading Skyline Drive – mile 105 to 42→

Boo! Day three is a wrap! After lunch we made our way through the Sweedlin Valley and then over South Fork Mountain. The climb over the mountain is tough. But the view is worth it and so is the downhill. Vacation is awesome!
