We took a drive to see the Shenandoah Mountains in the Autumn and I am so grateful we did. It was beyond description. We started in a beautiful little town called Front Royal. From here the Skyline Drive goes through this national park. They only rise to about 3000 feet but they are really spectacular. The winding roads were just lined with beautiful colors and the views were majestic. You could see rolling hills covered with bright colors for miles in the distance. And inbetween the colors were lush green rolling hills and farms. I'm sure the Garden of Eden could not have been lovelier. We drove for about 1 1/2 hrs and then took a side road down. The Skyline drive takes 5-6 hrs. to drive the whole thing. We drove down into a quaint little town called Sperryville. It was picturesque. We window shopped at gift shops with homemade quilts and crafts and jams and candies. It was a wonderful afternoon. Can you imagine tracting in this beautiful place?The winding Skyline Drive

The sunlight show just how magnificent the landscape was. (the sun made the pictures hard to show how really beautiful is was.)

Could it be the tree from Lehi's dream?
Who wouldn't want to tract in this little valley?
