Shenandoah National Park
Where : Shenandoah National Park.
When : October 29, 2005
Objective: To admire the wonderful fall colours.
Distance : 2 -2.5 hours driving from Richmond, VA.
Last Saturday, I had a trip to Shenandoah National Park with my friends. Similar to the previous post, it was a tumpang (Malay, meaning tagged-along) trip. We went there hoping to admire the wonderful fall colours. However, it wasn't quite the prime time yet for this matter as the colours of the leaves still look rather the same, except some trees that have different biological clock and leaves already turned red.
Shenandoah National Park lies astride a beautiful section of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which form the eastern rampart of the Appalachian Mountains between Pennsylvania and Georgia.
Skyline Drive, a 105-mile road that winds along the crest of the mountains through the length of the park, provides vistas of the spectacular landscape to east and west.
There are numerous parking overlooks that present panoramas of the Piedmont to the east and Shenandoah Valley to the west.
If we come during the prime time, you will get to see the wonderful fall colours. Sadly, it wasn't quite the time yet.
Some unknown flora.
I love this shot. What do you think?

We went for a short hike.
One of the maple tree that leaves had changed colours from green to red.

Oh well, better luck next time!
