Skyline Drive – Shenandoah National Park

by on Thursday, June 13th, 2013

On the way home from VA, we decided to take a side trip through the Shenandoah National Park on the Skyline Drive. If you ever get the opportunity, you need to take the time to cruise this roadway. There are 105 miles of scenic roadway with 75 overlooks and over 500 miles of hiking trails – if you are so inclined!!

We did take one hike to visit the Dark Hollow Falls, which was only a 1.4 mile round trip – but an extremely steep hike!! It was exhausting, but worth the effort!! Here are a few images from our visit to the Shenandoah National Park.

by on Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Congratulations to Daniel Gilley (our grandson) on his graduation from Freedom High School! We were able to travel to VA and share in his special event. It was held in the Patriot Center at George Mason University – which is a really nice facility.

Daniel not only graduated with honors, he accomplished the extremely rare feat of achieving a PERFECT SCORE on his ACT exam!! He is off to attend Virginia Tech in the fall.
