Memorial Day Weekend – Skyline Drive (Bearfence to Simmons Gap)

We spent the Memorial Day weekend in Virginia. On Saturday we drove the entire length of Skyline Drive (105 miles), from Front Royal to Rockfish Gap. In order to better showcase the photographs that I took along Skyline Drive, I have divided the drive into five areas:

Front Royal to Pass Mountain Overlook
Thornton Gap to Crescent Rock
Hawksbill Gap to Point Overlook
Bearfence to Simmons Gap
Loft Mountain Overlook to Rockfish Gap

This blog post highlights the portion of the drive identified as Bearfence to Simmons Gap.

    So beautiful! It is fun to see different parts of the country through your camera lense:) You commented about seeing the name Yoder on my Memorial Day post. My father was raised Amish and left the church when he was 17. He has contiued to serve the Lord to this day but not in the Amish church. It is a very rich and amazing heritage to have and he told us many things about his life growing up.
