Secret Vistas – A Photo Essay –
By Glynn Wilson –
SHENANDOAH VALLEY, Va. — The autumn color is not quite at its peak in these famous mountains with the legendary Shenandoah River running through them. But the scene should come to fruition in the next three weeks.
This is the result of day one and two for me on what I hope to be about a 10 day trip to the area. Check back soon for more. If the Shenandoah River State Park had WiFi in the campground, I would have much more to say about this part of the trip. Unfortunately it turned out to a dead zone for Verizon so the Jetpack would not work.
Meanwhile, posting from the Lucky Star Lounge in Front Royal worked great on Wednesday night. Met one of the owners, Trevor Lipton, a Londoner, and had a great burger and a good time listening to music. Unfortunately he went out of town and left others in charge, so when I went back Thursday night, the service was not so great and not as fun. So I headed back to the campground early.
On the way out on Friday, I stopped by the Shenandoah River State Park visitor’s center and office and was able to get connected for a little while. We are heading up the mountain to the Shenandoah National Forest‘s Mathew’s Arm campground for the final weekend it’s open for the season, and then on down Skyline Drive to the Big Meadow Campground next week. See you on the other side. More photos to come.
