I recently spent a few days in Shenandoah National Park and camped for two nights. I drove the entire length of the park via Skyline Drive (105 miles) and stopped at several of the 75 lookouts to take in the views. Unfortunately it was very foggy and rainy for most of my visit in the park, but I still got to see a lot and enjoy a new park.
This was also my first time camping for more than a night all by myself and I have to say, it was BORING. I did get a lot of reading in and got creative with picture taking, but nothing beats having someone with you to play cards with on your down time while camping.
To get this post started off, let’s see a video of just how rainy it was my first day in the park.
I did get out of the van after filming this video so I could use the restroom and get my park passport book stamped. By the time I made it back to the van I was drenched. I had to stop at another pull out down the road and change my clothes it was so bad.
And now for the pictures:
The next day I was walking to the restroom and was looking at my phone when something startled me. It was this deer. She was standing on the side of the road and jumped in the bushes to hide when I walked by her. This picture cracks me up.
Here is one of the creative pictures I was talking about. I read a solo travelers blog that talked about creative ways to make sure you were in some of the photos of your adventures. This was one of my takes on that.
