Shenandoah National Park

My first stop on my road trip was Shenandoah National Park.  I only had half a day there, and it wasn’t enough! Shenandoah was gorgeous.

Shenandoah is long and narrow and there’s a long road that goes right down the middle of it, with lots of viewpoints to park at and marvel.  It’s super accessible if you have mobility issues!

You can see the mountains from the so many places and everywhere is beautiful and deep green.

I found a little patch of thistles growing on an overlook! So cute!

I loved the combination of lush green forests and mountains.

A ridgeline! I really wanted to go hiking – I’m definitely heading back with some friends for a hiking and camping vacation.

The final viewpoint! I actually saw the cutest little black bear after this but I wasn’t fast enough with my camera to catch her roly-poly run up the side of the road to hide in the forest.  It was still my favorite part of the trip.
