From Swift Run Gap to Front Royal and Back

From Swift Run Gap to Front Royal and Back

We entered Skyline Drive at Swift Run Gap – which is the point we exited the week before…
We had to stop for the Turkey to cross the Road
 And then we took a picture of the valley
 (from the car)
 And another one because you can’t have too many
(from the trail we walked)
And then we saw the light at the end of the tunnel

ended up right here –

on our way back home we took a picture of where we just were!

 

and somewhere during our trip we stopped for our picnic just to realize we left our bread at home and had to find a shop at Big Meadows – we then found us a picnic spot and hiked the Appalachian trail for an hour before spending the rest of the time in the car being silly
We love waving at random people

 

Dark Hollow Falls

Dark Hollow Falls

What a HOT Monday it was! We decided we would head on up to Skyline Drive in VA with the assumption that it would be way COOLER up there…. and it was!!! We had a picnic at mile marker 54 or so before going on the trail for Dark Hollow Falls.

 


The walk down to these fabulous waterfalls was a lot of fun though rather steep at some parts! But we had a great time!

And because we went on the Skyline Drive side (the part you pay) we have until Sunday to get back as many times as we like. I think we might manage to make it up that way one more time this week! Perhaps to find a different waterfall…
