I’ve been visiting Mom here in the Shenandoah Valley since she moved in January 2016. I fly into Charlottesville and drive the hour and a half to my sister’s house on interstates 64 and 81 but my GPS always offers me an alternate route that I’ve never taken before today.
I wish I could have stopped and taken photos as I drove along Spotswood Trail through the mountains and Shenandoah National Park. It was absolutely beautiful with the trees still in full autumn colors. It’s not a drive I’d want to make in the snow as it gets pretty curvy and goes up and then down the mountain but on a beautiful autumn morning – it was gorgeous and it will become my route of choice from now on ( unless it’s snowing!)
