Our 2012 Spring Trip

We are back from our visit to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the surrounding National Forests and other natural areas in North Carolina and Tennessee.

We take nature's beauty as a witness of God's love for us, and are happy to share that beauty with you in our photographs and descriptions of what we saw.

Please checking back as we fill in missing entries.

Monday and Tuesday, May 7 and 8, 2012- Shenandoah NP and Front Royal Campground

We went up onto Skyland Drive in Shenandoah National Park. It was foggy, so we went to the nearest campground at the Lewis Mountain campground.  We found too much fog on the Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park to make us want to stay there more than one night (Sunday night), so we went back down off the mountain and had a late lunch at a Cracker Barrel Restaurant. Monday night  we stayed at a private campground in Front Royal, VA. We are hoping to see the trillium and maybe Yellow Ladyslippers Tuesday at Thompson Wildlife Management Area, about 13 miles from the campground. We were there last year and want to check it out on our way home. I am still trying to fill in the blog for April 28 through May 6, so check back.

Down off of the mountain the weather was not foggy, just cloudy.
