Skyline Drive, which highlights the Shenandoah Valley part of the Appalachians. We stopped at this visitors center to pick up info and a map.
Virginia Safari Park drive thru park, once before, and always knew we'd go back. How we found this area is it's a mid-point between Philly and Charlotte, NC where my mom, and 2 sisters live. Usually people take 95S, but we have no patience for the traffic near Baltimore and DC. The I81 highway is so much prettier too. I take lots of photos of the roadside attractions, none of which I have in this post, maybe in August when I go to Charlotte for my summer trip. The entrance fee is $18 a person, cheaper for kids, and a bucket of food for the animals is $3.50 or 4 for $12. Mike really likes this part of the safari park and he bought 6 buckets. If you don't want to drive your car through you can ride the shuttle, which you can see in the top of this photo.

We decided to see if they had rooms, and they did. We got a 2nd floor w/balcony for only $140, as it was after the holiday weekend.

Mike and I are car hiking in the Appalachians. That means we stop at a lot of pull offs to enjoy the scenery and don't get ticks or chased by bears. Although we did see one on Sunday, with her cub. Adorable. I'll do that post on Wednesday when I get back. I can't wait to tell you about this trip to Virginia, you can do over a weekend, and the kids or the kid in you will love it.
