Shenandoah National Park encompasses part of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is mostly covered by forests. It's located in western Virginia, southwest of Washington, DC.
Despite foggy and dark October day I am satisfied about my short visit to the park. I could not amaze spectacular mountain views with multicoloured fall forests. Well, I live 40 min. from very similar Beskidy Mountains in Poland, so forests of Shenandoah National Park couldn't be as attractive and exotic to me as numerous parks I visited in say Arizona and Utah a year before.
Anyway, I enjoyed peace and quiet and a few other small things. I also met numerous does and a chipmunk. It's a pity I didn't see any waterfalls and didn't meet any black bear (there are 300 - 500!), bobcat or wild turkey, although I didn't expect to meet these hidden wild animals. Welcome to my tips for more.
- Pros:Wildlife, hiking, photography, fog (few visitors = peace and quite, mysterious pictures :-)
- Cons:Fog and rain, otherwise crowds of visitors, I suppose; slow Skyline Drive
- In a nutshell:Go for a hike and find black bears, bobcats and wild turkeys!
DRIVING - Looking at the map you may think that one hour is enough to drive Skyline Drive. You are wrong, it's 105 miles... more travel advice
