Shenandoah National Park // Cross-Country Road Trip Pt. 3
Saying goodbye to my family in Maryland was heartbreaking. Both my sister and I had an ugly-cry session, and I had the hardest time letting my littlest nephew go. But I couldn't put it off forever... So after as much stalling as my dad could handle, he and I set off across the country. With 2,500 miles of road ahead of us, we settled in with some good tunes, pre-packed snacks- thanks to my sister, and a camera- fully charged and ready to go.
The first spot on my road trip agenda was Shenandoah National Park. I hadn't been able to visit this park during my year and a half stay in Maryland, and it was a must-see before I headed out west. So my dad and I detoured off the main road and took Skyline Drive through the middle of the park.
It was stunning and such a breath of fresh air. We rolled the windows down and stopped at almost every look-out point to make sure we took in the best views the park had to offer. I spent more money than I had planned to at one of the park gift shops, but I don't regret it, at all. Near the end of our drive it started to rain which caused a thick mist to hover just above the ground. It was over before I was able to get a decent picture, but definitely one of my favorite memories.
Spotted- a hiker on the Appalachian Trail.

Have you ever been to Shenandoah National Park? What is one park that is near the top of your must-see list?
P.S. I am posting this exactly two months after it happened. Why does time pass so quickly when you don't want it to?!
