    Skyline Drive, it’s a gorgeous highway through Shenandoah National Park. Thanks by the way!

    Is this the grove at about mile 6? (Mileage on Skyland Drive, for those unfamiliar, is counted from Front Royal.)

    We were there last weekend – and yes it is lovely – but be warned that weekend traffic is extreme nuts!

    We entered the park around 11 a.m. and there was about 10 min. wait to enter ($15.00 per car) the visitor center & first few overlooks were 2xs overloaded. 5 min. wait to pass the stopped cars at the grove in this photo. (Are they the famous linden trees? We didn’t find out.)

    We had a great hike around mile 10 (rangers at the visitor center are super helpful despite the 10,000 people asking endless questions) and on our return at around 1:30, cars were backed up for about 3 miles before this site as people stopped to take this picture.

    Play hooky and go during the week. Or arrive before 9 a.m. on Sat. & Sun. But if you just want to see great fall colors and don’t need the views, go to Rock Creek Park or Great Falls.
