Shenandoah National Park

Yesterday I entered the Shenandoah NP, the second NP on the AT (the other being the Smokies). This park I visited frequently in my teens and twenties. I’ve been a member of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club for over 30 years – they maintain this part of the AT.

In the first 30 minutes of my time in SNP, I saw 4 bears. Two sets of moms with a single cub.

Also saw a very tame deer.

Then the rain came.

Some rainy day shots

A hickory nut.

Set webs galore:

Then the sun came out.

Great first day in SNP,

    The Shenandoahs, as you know, are pretty wonderful. Enjoy the early fall weather.

    I love the pictures of the spider webs. They remind me of lacy tatting, elegant.
